Yesterday, as I was finishing up the last few pages of the Africa album, I fell to tears. Not just the slip-down-your-face-almost-unnoticed kind, but the shoulder-wrenching-sobbing kind. My Mom warned me by text message last week... but I didn't really think it would happen, at least not these strong tears. But it was like leaving Africa all over again. I have yet to sit and read the album cover to cover... the anticipation may be worse than the reality, but just the thought of re-reading the blog posts I included has my insides shaking.
So, it is done... with the exception of five blog posts yet to write. That is not a promise that there are only five Africa posts left in me... that is just what I left room for, planned for. This morning my Mom is going to come over so I can share it with her. I hope she didn't put her make-up on yet...
