It’s happening, it really is. I woke up this morning, a nice clear day. The birds were singing despite a light shower. Its seems like it has been raining all week. Today is important for two main reasons, one is that it is Memorial day in Rwanda where I have lived and worked for the last 8 years and that I must now abandon for Canada. Its a day of remembering those whose lives were so viciously taken and the heroes that gave up so much to make certain that it would never happen again.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this country and the people. The seemingly never ending mantra of ‘onward, onward’. This has been my home, I have grown here in ways I could not have imagined and met some really good people. I know that while I am turning a page, my memories of Rwanda will remain firmly imprinted on my heart.
The other reason that I can’t help but be joyful today is that we are finally in the single digits. It is really happening. Next week, I will be heading off to Canada.
I made a video this morning and realised too late that I didn’t have the right editing software. baaaah. I’m going to go ahead and upload it as is, but I should be able to fix this when I have iMovie downloaded. Faster internet.. something else to look forward too.. yippee!
How ready I am? How ready I am!!? 🤦🏽♀️
