The snow on the ground this morning made me think of my first time to Ghana, land of palm trees and warm beaches, being close to the equator.
Here I am, with my own chief, sitting on the balcony of our chalet, facing the ocean, creating my own photo memory. I knew it was my last day there.
Pictures flashed through my mind – the woman in her black Benz on the red clay road, the son who thanked me and the balloon-filled sky as Nana drove towards the airport.
I remembered I was a woman of grace. I am still.
