Two days after the Tsunami the children and I were loaded up on the plane and started a new adventure on the mainland. I officially became a single parent(although had been living that reality awhile, it felt more real). I discovered allergies. I became a student....again. It has been a year of blessings. We did it. We're doing it. We've had great family support. We found great church support. We've been blessed and looked out for from above. The kids have made some good friends. The kids have tried to drive mom crazy. Note tried, I'm not there yet! We are greatly enjoying where God has planted us during this time. But we all miss our home. I say you can take the girl off the island but you can't take the island out of the girl.
Maybe one day we will get to taste island life again. Until then I will bloom where I'm planted!
