Our month-long furlough is over. We spent some much-needed time with our family and supporters. It took me a few days to actually unwind when we arrived in the States. I didn’t realize how much stress my body was carrying. It felt good to just physically be in the same room as our parents and siblings and friends. I’m so thankful for the technology of today, but there’s no replacement for hugs and laughs and sharing life together with others. We want to say a great big thank you to everyone who made our furlough so perfect!
