Bad News/Good News

This has been a hard week here at Incirlik. As I know I have mentioned before, one of my favorite things about this place is the closeness of the community. We are truly one big family-and last weekend, one of our own was diagnosed with cancer. This great lady has been such a sweet friend to me since I got here-always finding me to give me a hug, never forgetting my name, always there with a warm smile. Everyone here has been all out of sorts-shocked, sad, and upset. I guess that's the thing with close-knit communities-you never go through anything alone. I wish I weren't so affected by this, but am so thankful for the relationships that cause me to care.

Onto happier news, the Stebbins are heading to Germany!! Ryan and I agreed it was time to take advantage of our location and have an adventure. We both need the break and time of refreshment. I can't wait to see this beautiful country, and hopefully some of Austria too!! More details to come-
