He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.
Proverbs 14:26

As you would expect, one of the most difficult parts of life overseas is saying goodbye to family and friends when you leave the states.  (as I said in a previous post- we try not to say goodbye in our family- we say "see you later" :)).  Anyway, goodbyes are hard- I think anyone would agree.  And since we don't live physically close to any of our actual blood relatives overseas, we truly do become family with those that we interact with regularly in the country we live in.  Our kids call the adults "aunt" and "uncle", they develop really close relationships with other kids who are also living in a culture not directly their own- these friendships are precious.  So, these goodbyes also become very difficult.  Families move, jobs change, people go to other countries or back to the states.  A few years ago, our family experienced a very difficult goodbye with a precious family who had become so dear to us.  Our kids were fast friends from the day they met.

Many good memories together...

We are so thankful to once again be living in the same country as our sweet friends!  They are all so excited to be reunited!

Never a dull moment with this crew...
