The wedding is over and I’m sitting in my room just collecting my thoughts about today. I’m grateful to a team in the US called The Majestic Family. The crew at MMS made it possible to come to China to see my daughter’s wedding ceremony for her new Chinese family. Andee and Jerry are a delight to see and be with. Without the team of people who stayed in the US I would not be able to be here.
We’ve made some major changes in the past year and new changes are still coming. Andee was our blog writer for a long time. Many of you still remember her posts. She passed to our front counter position and has been the primary person processing orders for the last year. This meant our other daughter, Taylor, stepped into the blog writing area. This wedding and summer bring some major changes to our blog. Andee will be staying in China for about 1 year. After their extended stay Andee and Jerry plan to return to the USA. Taylor, however, will be leaving the blog in a few months to continue her studies in Mandarin Chinese. In a mere 2 months my home becomes an empty nest, my blog kitchen becomes quiet and my daughters can be found half way around the globe. This leaves me with many thoughts to ponder.
We’ve made arrangements with Taylor to pop in periodically to write about finding supplies in a different country. We will greatly miss her humorous perspective and mathematical challenges which result in massive amounts of samples which go to shipping. I’m not sure who will be the next blog writer, nor who will manage to steal (borrow) my hairbrush during my most rushed mornings but I suspect a whole new world is on the horizon. I believe we are ready to meet that new world. I’m just glad to hold on to the one I have a little longer.
