Why did I cry when jogging yesterday morning?
Why did I cry when saying the blessing on our food Sunday night?
Why did Amy & Brittany call me crying, Monday night; and then I started to cry?
Why did I cry when I called Rob to wish he & Lorena a safe trip yesterday?
TEARS pop into my eyes; I breath deeply and tell myself, "It's okay, it's a great opportunity, all our children are employed, I can deal with the separation of mother from adult-child. I remind myself that I am grateful for the different modern forms of communication like: cell phones, computers with cameras, e-mail and gchatting! (How did our ancestors leave their homes & family?)
Sweden is almost 5,000 miles from Utah, a fight to DC seems to take all day but to Sweden it's a minimum of 16 hours and 20 minutes! DC is two hours ahead of us but Sweden is 8 hours ahead of us.
I also ponder how Mike & I will keep our family close in-spite of the miles?
