This is the beginning to my last month here in Belfast. Anytime I get excited about going back home it is immediatly followed by sadness because I have had such a wonderful time here. Ive met so many nice and cool people here and even found some dead on friends, Alan, Doggy, Chrissy, everyone from Dundonald... Jennifer, Emma, Anthony, Claire from Bangor. Ive been so lucky here to meet so many new friends and getting to have so much fun with them while Ive been in Belfast. It makes me sad to say goodbye and I hope they will all be able to come visit me in California. I will also be missing the wee ones, Max, Niamh and I have become so close and it will be very hard leaving them. Ill miss seeing them everyday and all the hugs and cuddles. I will even miss the moaning and tantrums that come along with toddlers... well maybe I wont miss the tantrums but I will miss watching them learn and get bigger. They have grown so much in the 6 months Ive been here and I hope to see them again before they grow up much more. Maybe one day theyll come to Cali and I can take the kids to Disneyland.
My mom will be here in 22 days and I am the most excited about seeing her... I miss my momma so much! I think the one thing that I have gained while being here is the knowledge of how blessed I am and how much I love where I come from and who my friends and family are. I couldnt ask for a better life and moving away has just confirmed that I have it good. I have 2 parents who have always tried to give me the best and I hope they know how grateful I am for everything theyve given me... and especially for the way they raised me. I dont think anyone could have done any better.
So my Mom will be here in 22 days and in 27 days I will be flying home with my Mom and will be back in Visalia before the end of the night on the 29th of March. I absolutly cant wait!!! Ill be out downtown and hoping to see everyone for a drink. I know for sure Ill be with Anna and Yvette so its bound to be a good night, catching up and having some laughs. I was able to skype with both of my girls last night and that just makes me even more excited to get home.
PS I would like to wish my Dad a very Happy Birthday!!!
