I'm so excited for January, I just can't stand it. It's in my thoughts, mind, heart, and everywhere I look!! Just three short months and I'll be back holding my "babies" and hugging my kids, who call me "Emmamarie". In Uganda "Emma" is a boy's name so I've been told, and asked if I was a boy way too many times:).
I decided to tell everyone my name is "EmmaLee" in Uganda.
But some how the people can't quite understand "EmmaLee" so they call me "Emmamarie" and I think thats simply precious and adorable!! When I walk through one of my favorite parts of Uganda, Ssenge Village, everyone knows my name and comes out to see that "Emmamarie" has returned...
The excitement in me is building: beautiful dark skin, to see their gleeming smilies ,their bare feet, their torn clothing, their contagious happiness, - All welcoming me back! I can only dream of, in just a year and a half, their greeting me and this time I can hear it in my mind...them saying..."Welcome Home Emmamarie".
I'm not saying I'll be moving exactly to Ssenge Village but definitely visiting all the time!! I'm not sure yet where in Uganda God is calling me...But I can tell you that it's exciting and I'll be telling you every bit of my story!! Stay tuned:)
