I am so thankful for my physical health. I really don’t say that often enough. But it’s true. I have been unbelievably blessed with very good health for many years, and I am so deeply grateful.
So Very Grateful
Make a list of ALL the things I have been grateful for this year? That would be impossible. I am so blessed. My heart is so full. I have so much to be incredibly grateful for. I couldn’t possibly write them all down, and I couldn’t possibly expect anyone to read the whole list if I did!

Welcome to Kigali
We arrived in Rwanda late last night (around midnight, local time) after 30 exhausting hours of travel. Following an extended wait at the Kigali International Airport as a result of the passport control computer system going offline, we were finally able to make it through customs and meet up with Fred around 1:00 a.m. A … Continue reading Welcome to Kigali

Sink or Swim? …I think I’ll Swim
