I have many posts in draft currently that I plan on posting later – as you all should know (see previous post), but since today is my last day in the Middle East, I thought I’d post something quick.
Even though this trip was bittersweet with everything that happened, I still had an amazing time.
I always love seeing my family and I wish these reunions could happen more often – makes me want to get married just to see them. (Not ready yet!)
I LOVE being in Ramallah and seeing and hearing where my family grew up and meeting the people that knew my grandfather and family. Though I’m terrible at Arabic and am not as accustom to the little things in the culture there, I still feel a sense of belonging and a sense of comfort. Not sure how else to describe it.
All in all, there were good and bad times, but I’ll always remember how amazing this trip was – mainly because it brought me closer to my family.
I’ll be back in the states by tomorrow night, inshallah. I’ll share more of my stories later.
