Walt Disney said “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
This wasn’t part of my plan, actually, I didn’t have a plan – seems like the story of my life the last few years – but here we go, ready or not! The moving truck is showing up on my doorstep in Zurich next Tuesday and by Thursday afternoon, this wandering Texas Cowgirl will be back in God’s country.
A couple of weeks ago, I said Thank You to all of the people who have taken me by the hand and by the heart over the last 4 plus years. Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
I can assure my Texas family and friends that I have been surrounded by love, generosity and adventure!
My Swiss colleagues made me cry by presenting me with the most awesome gift ever – a Swiss Cowbell with my name engraved on it! Honestly, it is my most prized possession from my time here in Switzerland. I can’t wait to show it to everyone back home!
Of course the Swiss Ol Army club got together for one last hurrah! Randy – thanks for bringing Cowboy over and tell him Uncle Henry wants him to come visit soon. James, I’ll see you and Jenny on the other side of the pond. Marianne & JJ – I owe you the world! You were the very first to reach out to me and make me feel welcome and comfortable! Do you remember ZZ Top?? I know God crossed our paths for a reason – I mean, I come 5380 miles away to meet Aggies that know my WINGMAN Charles Williams! Love you guys!
My girlfriends! You are lovely lovely women! You have beautiful hearts and I am so happy that we have been able to share such wonderful experiences! Thank you for your kindness and your smiles!
Each of you has a special place in my heart – one minute I want to become an Italian and the next, I’m going to spend half of the year in Greece and the other half on Majorca! The world is big but at the same time, so very small. You have each given me a reason to place my flag on every point on the map – I want to experience it all!
Felicitas – we are going to write that book! But I think you need to come to Texas to do some research 🙂 I have a few Texas Cowboys who would love to help you.
To my special Swiss CIA FBI MI6 agent and his lovely girlfriend – I am so glad it only took Uncle Henry and I four years to build enough trust for you to finally gave us your real name. Don’t worry, I’m tagging you on Facebook but none of my friends will forward this – its all in the “circle of trust”!
Ladda and Johan of course have been by my side every minute since Uncle Henry and I said we’d be headed west. What a blessing they have been in our lives! We fully anticipate Ladda to make her first Texas visit in the very near future so that she and Uncle Henry can go on long walks in the Texas sunshine.
For those of you back in Texas – you know that you have always been in my heart, no matter where I may wander. You have been my stability, my grace, my comfort and the world is ready to come visit you! I can’t wait to hug each of your necks – ready or not, here we come!
Jennifer and Uncle Henry
