In new friends, in vocab, in students, in communication?

In hair length, in miles, in laughter, or rice?

In phrases she learned?

Thankfully I can say “Durian is disgusting and smells terrible” in two languages now! 

Or the time the sky cried?

“Cried” rhymes with “Tried” but what I meant was “Rained” (#poetry)

In that time she returned?

Or the meals that she tried?

How do you measure, measure a year?


We have now officially ended our monthly tally of my first year in South East Asia. I will no longer count up the months when I tell people how long I’ve been here, I’ll just tell them 1 year until it’s acceptable to round up to 2. Everyone agrees that when a baby hits 12 months it’s really time to let go of the “monthly check-in” thing (and you’re probably too busy to keep track anyway).

 

And so the tally becomes a countdown, and I’m so grateful for the time that I had and the time I have left.

If there has been any good that I have done, any contribution to put forward, I can honestly say that the Father is the one who gave it. To Him be the glory and the honor forever and ever. Soli Deo Gloria.

And now please enjoy a slideshow of all my month pictures from this year, where my spelling mistakes are both hilarious and painfully obvious! Cheers to another year together!
