Last night, I returned from my trip home in Nairobi.
With 8 nephews and nieces all under 17; a parent that requires care giving; and a garden, chickens and livestock that need caring, my time at home went lightning fast. It was hectic, it was rowdy, it was demanding. My days were often quite overwhelming.
When the kids got together, it was noisy, it was funny, it was crazy, mostly, it was quite insane really. Add to all this a teenager who is rebeling and constantly at offs with his mom! I am surprised I have any hair left on my head.
My trip was all these things and more. And yet, it was bliss. I miss my crazy family already and cannot wait for my next trip home.
