Yes, 5 years ago today, at 5:30 am, I got off the plane in Auckland and saw Hubby for the first time.
My life since I've been here has been nothing at all like I was used to in the US. But that's all OK.
Life should be lived. Risks should be taken. Obstacles should be confronted. Those are the things that make us grow and appreciate what we have. And make us know we are alive.
To tell you the truth, I never, ever thought in a million years that I would be living the second half of my life halfway around the world....in a country I barely know how to find on a map...with a husband after many, many comfortably boring years alone...with teenage kids and all that entails...and having to adjust and find who I am again.
But, I know that I know that I know that I am where I should be.
And it's all good.
