Three years in Mexico…that calling changed our life so very much. Three years is such a long, and a short time.
My children and grandchildren have loved coming here on vacation. Mexico has so much to offer – antiquity, history, and brand new experiences. They all have seen, and eaten, things they never would have dreamed of. Some have held baby lions, pet camels, and eaten deep fried crickets. They have walked through churches that have stood for hundreds of years and climbed pyramids that are thousands of years old. All of them have said it was their best vacation ever.
Their “last vacation” here has already happened for most of them. It is so interesting to see their reactions as they leave. Our home here has become their family home and they feel sad leaving it. They talk of never being here again and what they will miss. They will miss all of “this stuff” here. Some of them are trying to find ways to come back “one more time.” Slowly Mexico City has replaced Oroville.
Home truly is where your loved ones are.
