Pros of being home in America:
I've been baking and cooking lots of delicious food!
My immediate family is all together for the first time in a few years.
I get to drive.
I get to sleep on my own schedule.
I have lots of time to read.
Cons of being away from Jerusalem:
I'm not living in the center.
I can't walk to the city every day.
I can't barter in stores.
I'm constantly freezing here.
No delicious tuna fish pitas for lunch.
But the worst thing- yes, it gets worse- is that I'm not constantly surrounded by all of you, my dear Jerusalem friends. Things are different now, but let's not change the love we feel and show toward one another. I love you all and I miss you and think of you every day! I saw Anna and Kali on Friday, the day after we had all said goodbye, and we freaked out from happiness. It felt like home to see their faces. I can't wait to see you all again! Have a Merry Christmas! I can't wait to spend a little time Friday morning after I wake up to read the Nativity with my new found appreciation for it. Don't forget to spend time Christmas day focuses soley on the Savior!
I love you all so much!
