I'm Sorry Mama...I Never Meant To Hurt You...


In the last few days, I have been cleaning out closets and making piles of clothes:

* Take to mom's
* Take to Kenya
* Take to Goodwill

I tend to talk out loud to myself, so I would say aloud which stack each item was being placed in.

Every time I said, "Take to Kenya", it became more and more real: I'm moving across the world...in a little over two weeks.

These photos are meant to show my mix of emotions: excitement, nervousness, sadness, disbelief. I go back and forth within minutes--like a crazy person.

I can't believe how quickly it came...and I'm sure it will pass just as quickly...which, again, brings mixed emotions...I don't want to miss it, but I know how homesick I will be...I don't want people to forget about me here, which I know won't necessarily happen, but I keep wondering who will be proactive at keeping up a relationship...

So many thoughts swirling through my head...and nothing I can do about it, really...

As long as you would never diss your own momma to gain recognition...
whatever.
I can't believe it either...
But it's gonna be awesome.

PS Take a lot to Goodwill
