“I so value the eye-opening experiences working with diverse people groups. How can anyone ever feel bored?!! Each person we meet gives us knew information, and helps us grow! I am so grateful for both my successes and my failures, each of which has been instructive to my development as a person. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead — for me and you!”
A Favorite Quote from Melody Beattie:
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
