What I want to say [before I go on with my 'list' thing] is Thank-you. Wow, my friends. I got 15 comments and my sister and Mom telling me, "No! Don't stop blogging!". You know what? I will still keep this blog open. Not because of your comments though, or anybody's. I thought and prayed about it last night, and I will still keep the blog goin'. I won't post as much though, since I do want to spend my time on better things.
Oh, and I want to make something clear. When I said I might stop the blog, I did not say that because all I think blogging is about having followers, and comments, and that I wouldn't be as "popular" because I wasn't living in a different country sharing pictures. Most of the reason I wanted to stop was because my Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, my parent's friends, and my friends won't need to know how we're doing and want pictures of Egypt. I did the blog so I wouldn't have to keep emailing tons of people about how we're doing, I can just write it here.
Understand? All those people won't need to know how we're doing. [my parents would give their friends my link so they could see pictures, by the way] We'll be back home in the US.
Hopefully I made that clear . . . .
You are wondering what the title is about, right? O.K. I was going to list the good & bad things about being a missionary kid [in Egypt, for me at least].
- You miss all your friends and family
- There aren't chocolate chips *tears*
- There isn't much green grass
- You get sick a lot [truth]
- You get sick of people yelling "What is your name?" because that's the only thing they know how to say in English
- The internet and electricity is bad
- People lie and say they'll do something, just to please you but they never do it
- There aren't any traffic lights or signs, people drive wherever they please
- You get to bring people to Christ [not in our case, we've been too busy trying to get other things done, which is partly why we're going back. See below post for more info]
- Arabs have the most tastiest foul beans; SO yummy!
- The people are very nice and generous
- You get off on school when others don't. *grin*
- It's fun riding on planes
- There is good weather almost year round!
- You have interesting things to blog about *wink*
I can't think of anything else now . . . later maybe. Sorry for this long post, but I made it long since we're leaving tomorrow for America and I won't post for awhile. I think I'll do a scheduled post for New Year's.
You know what would be really cool? If I when I go to check blogger after we've moved and settled I had 100 followers and a ton of comments. *hint, hint*
It's not a big deal though. I was just mentioning it. [HAHA!] Alright, alright, I need to stop. This post is long enough.
When I update again, guess where I'll probably be? In the snowy land of Kentucky....
I might like it for a bit, but we'll see! I do like the weather here in Egypt. One of the things I'll miss, thought I won't miss much since I've been in bed for almost the entire time!
Some surprises are coming when I get back . . . a new blog design since I'm not going to be in Egypt anymore, and a giveaway. Thanks a ton to Andrea, Mrs. Marlow, Kaela, Olivia, and Hannah P. [Not Pevensie, Hannah Ours] for agreeing to sponsor my giveaway with prizes!
So long, farewell! [The hills are alive with the sound of music!]
Your sister in Christ,
