Five Days

Tish and her motherWe were notified a week or so ago that Tish’s mother is ill and in the hospital.  She is almost 90 years old and we are very concerned for her.   Please pray for Granny.

We asked the Peace Corps if we could go home a few weeks early to beFive4 with Granny and help her.  They agreed and moved our Close of Service (COS) date up to April 11th.   This means we will be leaving five days from now.

Time has flown by.  It seems like just yesterday that we arrived here in Africa tired but excited after a 30 hour trip.  At that time we were counting down the years until our return, then the months, now just five days left.  It is hard to believe.  We are proud of our Peace Corps Service and enjoyed our time here (most of it anyway), but we are ready to come home.

Five DaysOnce again we are leaving our house which is full of our things and memories of Africa, packing up two suitcases and leaving all the rest behind… in just 5 days !!

We will be arriving in Atlanta 7:20 am on April 12th on Delta flight 210.

    Praying for all of you and for granny. Tish, I miss seeing your sweet face at NAED but I know you’ve been doing wonderful deeds as well as Marion. I’ve been following your blog this entire time. It’s amazing to see other parts of the world and their ways of life. Makes me fortunate to have what we have. Maybe one day when you return to the U.S of A, I’ll have a chance to see you again. Take care.

    Hi Tish and Marion, I am so glad you she stayed well during your time away and you can return and get to be with her and advocate or help her . Our prayers will be with you and Betty. I wish I could be there Wed to escort you to home. Keep us posted and if we can do anything, let us know.
    Peace and love,

    Can’t wait to see you. Granny is feeling better so you are going to come home in time to help rehab her. When a woman puts on her lipstick, one knows that she is feeling better physically and mentally. It was so good to see her for ourselves yesterday and on her birthday. She is so excited that you are coming home. I think it was the bridge that helped her cross over the river of illness that almost took her home. How blessed we are to see the sparkle back in her eyes that only your return could have placed there. Love you both and just can’t wait.
