Thursday Wednesday (yikes!), Mr and Mrs Satchel (aka Mr and Mrs Bartle) are heading to Cambodia, via Thailand, to work with the crew behind Destiny Rescue. I am most excited about this overseas assignment, and the idea of working alongside my husband on his projects, so to gain the full measure of the experience, which I imagine in many respects will be life changing, and to devote time to learning about the girls themselves, I have decided to refrain from blogging for the time that I am overseas (and perhaps a little while after to make sense of all the bits and pieces that will inevitably be swirling around in my brain).
In the meantime, Sophie and Brooke will be dropping by GWAS intermittently to keep things bubbling along (they're truly marvelous company... the kind of girls who you can play with in the autumn leaves or laugh with about your carefree hairy nether regions – aka "the mangroves" – and yet also enter into a deep and thoughtful theological or literary discussion with; and they would loathe it that I am building them up in such a fashion). Oh, and another friend will be dropping in to wrap up the news at the end of the week. Emma might stop by for a bit of banter, too. I will be missing out on all the fun.
So long, farewell, until I return to this space, friends, satchelings, countrymen.
