“The day that my husband and I wed is a day that has wrapped itself around my heart and has been imprinted into my mind for all of my days. I ached to see the smile of my father–to have him there to walk me down the aisle–for the warmth and comfort of my mother and sister’s doting love and laughter as they would help me slip into my dress, reminiscing on days gone by, and for the sight of the sweet tears that would roll down my grandmother’s face and fill my heart with joy.  Alone in our thatched villa in the wild bush of Africa, thousands of miles from our loved ones, I bowed my head in prayer and I felt serenity wash over me. This day, this feeling, these memories will never fade.  Our souls will forever be willfully bound to this soil, and our hearts will ache to be in the presence of this ethereal land until we return once more.” Says Janna
