Oh man. Here I am. Spending my last morning in Iowa. I head back to California this afternoon, and believe me when I say it is a bittersweet thought.
I didn't expect to love it here as much as I have. I mean, let's face it. This is IOWA. There's not a whole lot here. But I've grown to really love and appreciate it, and there is a lot that I'm going to miss about it. For example:
~Brother and Sister-in-Law
~My new church family
~The green-ness (Note: NOT the humidity. Just the green.)
~Gong Fu Tea
Among other things.
But at the same time, I'm excited to return home. As awesome as it was to get away, and as much as I'm disappointed my time here is ending, home is just that. HOME. It's familiar. It's comfortable. It's where I belong. For now, anyway.
It's been a great summer, and I hoping that it will have been just what I needed before jumping back into school in the next few weeks. Ew. School. [Boo! Hiss!]
Psalm 116: 1-2 ESV
I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because He inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
