Good Morning Folks,
I will be coming home in a few short weeks and I am not sure how I feel about that.?. I was thinking to myself yes I can get away from the lizards, but in reality it is quite sad that I will be coming home. I have gotten so used to the Ghanaian life that this is now my comfort zone. When I start thinking about home, I started thinking about all the noise, the rushing around that I don't miss, and the paying of bills etc.
While being away from home my dog ran away from home, I guess he was looking for his mama. I am sad about that fact that he ran away he has never gotten out of the fence ever in all the seven years that I have had him. When I came to Ghana I was told that it may be a culture shock for me, well it wasn't. I think the culture shock will be when I get to the states. I am going to need some help adjusting to home I think, that is the weird part that I am going to need help being back at home. Elizabeth Jean-Baptiste, I will need you really bad then just so I can talk Africa with you. It is very ironic that she will be my professor for the coming semester this school year, which she is a bowlful of awesomeness and can really help me to sort through it all; I think she will get sick of seeing my face in her office.
I will defiantly be in prayer more when I get back home, one thanking God for this opportunity for being in Ghana, two for making it back home safetly, three for all the many blessing that he has in store for me. Now that I have study abroad I can see myself doing it again, where I would go I am not sure . Would I come back to Africa of course I will, if the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise. This trip has opened up my mind and my heart to the world. There are so many things that are waiting for me somewhere else. I am very glad that I got out of my little American box. This country has helped me to develop in ways that I never have imagined that I would grow. No one is ever to old to learn and we all need room for improvement, there is another little life lesson some where hidden in the blanket of today's lesson plan that I am sure I will get today. With that said I am on the way to the basic school to see all my children, all 73 of them and to take pictures. When I get back to the states I am going to develop those pictures and make something with their picture on it and send it back to them; from Auntie Kathy to you with love little ones.
Ghana Girl gone!!
