What I miss about America...

...the way my money fits so nicely in my wallet
...the friendly faces and smiles EVERYWHERE
...that the ladies at Beauty Alliance (hair supply store) remembered I was on a mission's trip and asked all about it
...that the women at Walgreens wanted to know where I was going that I needed my passport photo and then asked me what Wales was like
...that I get to call it a bathroom without anyone taking the mick out of me
...my new and wonderful cell phone (mobile =)
...that driving feels incredibly natural and not terrifying
...texting friends in the States for free
...Chick-fil-A. I've been there 3 times already. Yay Polynesian sauce!
...friends who feel like family
...little girl's hugs, kisses and "Where is JJ?!" every time they get home
...being in the same time zone as friends and family over here
...the excitement, energy, and constant "buzz" in the air
...the cheeseburgers

It's good to be home!

Oh my goodness, I'm so excited for you! I was reading your post smiling and thinking 'I know exactly how she feels'! Praying for your time in the States and then your transition back to the UK. I love you!
