Returning from our trip to Africa, Rebecca and I received a call from a very special family member and learned that they had been diagnosed with cancer. With support from Rebecca and my employer, I was able to head home to help on September 21st, 2019. Rebecca was also able to join a few weeks later just in time for Thanksgiving.
There are so many things that I enjoyed about being back in Calgary and Strathmore. I drafted a long list of the highlights but I’m going to keep that list to myself and close to my heart. I was happy to help out where I could and do the drives into Calgary. I am so grateful for the time, generosity, hospitality, and love I was shown from my family and friends while I was back. It was the most time I’ve spent at home since leaving Canada in 2010, and man, I really loved it. Rebecca and I said our goodbyes and returned to Abu Dhabi together on Nov 5th.
