Daybook (countdown to South America)

(from the simple woman's daybook)

Outside my's night.  Can't wait until I the days get longer.

I am thinking...that Machu Picchu will still be closed when we get to Cusco next Sunday. 

I am thankful for... my co-worker returning from maternity leave today!

I am remembering...the "Game of Things" on Saturday many things are more fun with 4!

I am going... to Continent 6 on Friday.

I am currently reading...How Coffee Saved My Life...and Other Stories of Stumbling to Grace by Ellie Roscher.  She writes about her experience as a young adult missionary in Uruguay.  It's a quick and fun read (especially finding out specifically how coffee saved her life).  Also very timely with our topic for the youth last night about the Great Commission.  Quote from the book "I believe that God loves me radically.  That love is liberating.  As a free North American with power and privilege, I can move into contact with my neighbor.  I can love God by loving my neighbor, and that neighbor does not need to live next door."

I am hoping...that training goes well on Wednesday and that I have no flight delays on Friday.

On my mind...last year, on the first Monday of February, I was preparing to depart the next day for a volunteer vacation in Thailand.  Hard to believe it was that long ago.  Definitely the right decision.  Is it ironic that one year later I'm getting ready for another trip and my suitcase is still not packed? 

Noticing co-workers are really into the weight loss challenge.  It's going to be a great 3 months.

Pondering these words... "So here I am, all of me, Finally everything, Wholly, wholly, wholly..."
From the kitchen... nothing. I'm trying to get rid of my food this week. 

Around the house... a half packed suitcase.

One of my favorite things...preparing for vacation.

From my picture first day in Thailand, one year ago!
