My friends mean the world to me and i think i am just truly realising that now. Ben and i have been watching the TV seres 'one tree hill' all the girls at uni were into it last year but i never got into it until now. Ben and i have shut our self in the house some weekends and lost ourselves in the show. One of the characters Brooke has just gone back to her home town because she realised how important her friends were to her and how they were her true family (she has a crazy mum) anyway it made me relies how much i love and miss my friends. We have been through so much together and they have seen me grow into who i am today and i really think i wouldn't be the person i am without them. I had a few years when i wasn't in contact with these beautiful girls and trust me they were not good ones!
Being so far away is really hard, a lot harder then i had thought. But i am trying to stay positive and remember that this is were God wants me right now. I am learning so much about myself, about teaching, about Ben and marriage and learning to trust God more. And the kids are so cute! last term one of the little girls came up to me and asked me if i had any family here at Karalundi, i said "no not really, just Ben" and she said "Well don't worry miss, We'll be your family" how cute is that.
I miss my friends and family like crazy being here but i know we'll be back together soon and that i just need to make the most of what God is giving me here.
