So Sad…

Today I am VERY sad! My heart is with my Chinese friends…

Their Mother died yesterday. It has been a very difficult few weeks and especially last few days with her family by her side constantly not leaving the hospital. Wei Quan has 2 sisters and 1 brother and they have been there day and night. I am so very thankful to have met this sweet lady, and have heard many stories about her. I see so much of her in her children.  Wei Quan called today and asked that I be present as they say farewell. Close friends and relatives will be there and he said his wife and sisters wanted me there that his Mother would be so happy. So my heart is heavy and deep in thought today. Tomorrow I will attend my first Chinese funeral and pay my respects and be there for my friends as they say farewell to their Mother.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
