I totally relate to this blog! I’d only add that going to Walmart becomes something surreal for us missionaries. If we aren’t crying about not being able to make a choice in the salad dressing aisle, then we are straining our ears to hear the Spanish being spoken by the shoppers in the next aisle over. Just a quick run for diapers can require a week of therapy. It’s such a roller coaster ride!
ReEntry Shock is a real thing for missionaries. This is a raw, bare bones account of what becomes a universal experience for people who live overseas. Coming home is never the same again- home changes, people change, and we wonder if you still remember us and love us. Please read this blog and feel free to comment.
