The Trip That Changed My Life

It is almost midnight here is Ethiopia

We just got back from a true Ethiopian dinner- with dancers and all!

It was a long, exhausting day so it was nice to sit down. We ate, we chatted, we made new friends. I still can't comprehend that I am in Ethiopia, Africa. But then we leave to go to another organization and I remember I am around children who have been abandoned.

Remember this when you doubt your purpose.

It was Monday evening, I was sitting in row 20C on Alaska airlines, and we started to descend into Phoenix. I was returning from an amazing weekend back home in Washington State. Not only did I get to meet my new niece for the first time, I was able to finally attend the Washington State Spring Fair with my nephews and attend my nephew’s fourth birthday party. It was one of the most special weekends home since I moved away almost four years ago.
