Good evening! I have just come home with Greg after picking him up at Heathrow airport. I cannot believe that he is finally here!
The funny thing it that it is exactly one year ago, I stood in that same terminal, getting ready to board my flight to Uganda, and had no idea that I would meet him there as another volunteer and fall in love.
We met when we were both volunteering in Uganda, where we worked at the same project, in a small village. I mostly worked in the orphanage and the health clinic connected to the project, and Greg did teaching and construction. Since then Greg has stayed with me in Norway and I have stayed with him in New Zealand.
Waiting for him in the arrivals gate at Heathrow today felt so special. So much has happened in a year and my life is very different now from what it was a year ago.
Life can be full of surprises, and now the new year can begin.
Have a good night,
