In China

This morning at 9:00 I got a single-line text:  We have arrived.  And that's the last I've heard from my son who is now in. . .China.  And he will be, for the next two years of teaching English.

This is a huge adjustment for a woman whose son has known many times in the past just how to encourage his mother's heart.

We hold our children loosely, not expecting them to stay by us all their years; however, this is quite a stretching of the cords.

I await hearing more about how the adjustment is going, and in the meantime am sending "thoughts" to the One who has sent him there.
