So far away...

My husband's job has sent him around the world for the last few weeks. Every time the phone rings, my heart jumps.

Last night he called me from a McDonald's in China. The noise in the background was deafening. "It's wild here...China is wild...it's the wild west," he shouted into the phone. "And the coffee is hot! The Chinese characters on the McDonald's coffee...they say, 'Danger! Very hot!'"

I asked: Why are you in a McDonald's in China?

I couldn't make out his reply. It was all static. It sounds like he's in transit. He promised to send photos and e-mail as soon as he can get connected somewhere.

(Sigh...)

What's that old saying about absence and fondness? Seems to hold true painfully often......
