I was so excited to get back to see my family and friends, but I truly do miss China! It was the most amazing experience of my life and I am so glad that I was able to participate in the program.
Even better, when I got home and threw my bags on the floor in my room, I plopped down on my bed and realized that it was much softer than I remembered. Apparently, my blogging about hard beds in China prompted my parents to buy me a new memory foam mattress!!! Yay for me! Then the next morning I headed out to my truck to run some errands in town and I was surprised to see that my truck had four brand new tires!! I couldn't believe that after supporting me so much to go to China that my parents still had surprises in store for me when I got home. I can't thank them enough for everything that they have done for me, nothing in my life would be possible without their love and support.
Of course, my two favorite parts about being home are riding my horse, Velvet, and being able to drive my truck again!
Thanks again to everyone who supported me throughout this journey, it means more than you'll ever know!
