And here we are less than a week away from flying out of the U.S.A. to start a new adventure in a foreign land.
When we first started thinking and talking about the possibility of moving to Israel for two years for Tyler to do school, it always felt so far away and even almost very unlikely. But with less than a week away from flying out, I have decided that it is very much real.
While we were still living in Minnesota, I was working at a thrift store and we often had customers, who had come to America from other countries. It was sometimes a struggle to understand them, because there English was not always supper great or their accent was hard to understand.
But that foreigner who is hard to understand and speaks a different language is soon going to be me.
It will be me walking the streets or in the market place trying to buy food and communicate with the locals. And they will be the ones trying to understand what I am saying. And I will be the one who speaks a foreign tongue.
