I love my life in Cambodia, but there are countless things I miss from back home. When I say back home, I mean the states. From Pennsylvania to California to Washington, there are people I think about every single day.
This morning, I received one of the most touching emails I’ve ever received from a dear, dear friend in the states (who just recently welcomed their newest family member into the world) after hearing of my unfortunate inability to make a trip home soon.
Regardless of where I am in the world, things like this will always make me grateful for the life I lead and the friends I can call family.
