The Mixed Emotions that come with the realization that after 4 years
We are going back to the USA for a few months are hitting the Adults in our family these days.
We have experienced so many new things,
Seen so many new places,
And made so many new friends,
That the Transition--however temporary--from this side of the world
To the other side has proven more emotionally challenging than we had hoped.
But all of Our Journeys, even just the tedious grown-up-life ones,
Are made a lot easier because we have such awesome kids,
Who deserve medals for their eagerness to travel by plane, train, car, horse, or rickshaw,
Endure hours of just sitting while Mom & Dad do their jobs,
Eat things a normal person would never try,
And let us dress them up every time we go to Darjeeling.
