Ready to Go Back

I am so eager to go back to my kids' country.  Of course, to pick them up, to hold them again, to bring them home; but also because part of my heart is in that place, and always will be.

I long to walk from a tiny apartment to the little market, or to the tiny restaurant nearby, or past the other apartments for a walk in the park.  I long to have a stray dog follow me as I walk past the fountains.  I long to have stray cats rubbing at my ankles, staring expectantly for me to drop a bit of my pork onto the ground.  I even long to trip over the uneven sidewalk tiles.

Soon, I'll be back, and I'll have two children to share that beautiful place with.  I cannot wait!
