Holiday season transitions

November 27, 2010

As I type it is now Saturday night in PNG. My Thanksgiving weekend has been very good. On Thursday evening we had a group over from one of the youth hostels. We had a good time. The hostel parents & their 2 sons are from the USA. All of the other teens are from other countries. So, it was fun to share about traditional Thanksgiving things. It was sweet, the hostel mom made two types of stuffing/dressing, one including cornbread for me! We each also shared at least one thing that I we are thankful for. I shared that I was grateful for both my family at home, and that God has given us family here in PNG.

Then on Friday night, my housemate Lynn and I went to eat a second Thanksgiving dinner with friends. Lynn and I are the adopted aunties for their 2 little girls. Being adopted into a family here is a special blessing. It helps me to feel more at home, and the girls get the needed extended family love that they also need. It does not ever take away from the love that you feel towards your family back home, but it is a blessing to have family here.

Today, I got my hair cut, then worked on some sewing/mending projects. Then I had a lovely nap. Tonight, Lynn and I set up and decorated the Christmas tree. Now, I am watching the movie, “Miracle on 34th Street.” A nice way to end the day, transitioning between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
