The snow has yet to come and the lawn ornaments never went up, but it’s still Christmas Day in Tanzania and I have to say that all factors taken into account, this Christmas feels as close to Christmas as I could ever hope to get.
As expected, it’s strange being in this far away country for the holidays, but I am still having a blast. One of my good friends made a great point, even though none of us are spending the holidays with our families we are spending them together with this new, amazing, family that we have created. The relationships that we’ve made with each other will last long after we all come back to the states and start that “normal” life that looms ahead of us. So, as much as I missed a tree with lots of fun wrapped presents, and stocking stuffed to overflowing this morning, I was perfectly content to wake up with my friends and proceed to make pancakes and hash browns so my little make-shift family in TZ could have a nice Christmas breakfast.
I just wanted to put up a quick post and let you all know that I wish you a Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Years! I love you all and am keeping you in my heart every day!
