I have to keep reminding myself of the end result, Meredith and David waiting on the other side of customs with open arms. It's been nearly a year since I've seen them. I wonder; have they changed? Will I seem different? Will Meredith still feel like the other half of my apple? Will the kids show any excitement upon seeing me?
I'm afraid too because it's Israel, a place I was never excited about visiting. Tonight I had to assure Christophe's son that it's safe where my friends live, that Eliza and I will be okay. But of course, I'm nervous. And yet, still excited to see my great friends in another place, another time. Their oldest son is celebrating his Bar Mitzvah. This is an event we've all anticipated since he was born in 1995.
I also may be taking a flight of a different sort when we return in Mid-May. I can't reveal too much but let's say I looked at apartments a few days ago and found something I really, really liked!
