A Letter from Zambia

Grace, Patience, Lily, and Hudson-

Kids, I miss you so much tonight that my heart hurts.  I can't talk to you, so I will write you a letter instead.

My trip here was very, very long.  The only thing that will get me back on an airplane next is the hope that you and Daddy will be there when I get home.

I've seen lots of people who speak many different languages.  I flew near the Sahara Desert, and we flew by Mount Kilimanjaro.  Ethiopia was beautiful, and it had trees FULL of purple flowers!  I went to Zimbabwe too, and it was very, very green.  When I was there, there was only one country between me and the Indian Ocean- do you know which one it was?

I flew all the way across the Atlantic Ocean- and I've missed you every minute I've been gone.

The grasshoppers here in Zambia are very colorful, and they like to flip backwards!  I took a bath with a big snail tonight- and the children here in Zambia are beautiful, just like you.

I can't wait to be with you again.  I love you!
