Thanksgiving with a whole new perspective.

This past week I had the privilege of spending a week in Costa Rica on a mission trip with the senior class at my school. Today I am thankful for all the things I learned and experienced there. One thing I learned is how much we have in the US and how selfish we can be. All the kids we spent time with were all so thankful for what they had no matter how much or little it was. We have some local kids from a more rural are each 1 beanie baby 1 sock doll and some candy, and the gratefulness and smiles warmed my heart and really humbled me. We also helped finish an outdoor church while we were there and the people we were doing it for were all do loving and really treated us like family. They threw us a fiesta and cooked for us and they just showed us so much love even though we speak different languages. That brings me to another thing I learned; we had the ability to bond and make connections with so many of the Costa Ricans because we share the belief in God and we are human and God intended s to love as He loved us. It was such a beautiful thing to see and experience. Whether it was with the kids we were playing with or worshiping through songs in Spanish with the people of the church, we were all able to simply live and love together. I will never forget the time I spent in Costa Rica and I hope I can go back someday.

Monday 8/11-Friday 8/15

Working to get back in shape by running at the lake by my house. I have really enjoyed it actually! Getting to see the sunset while listening to my favorite podcast has made the exercise part not so bad! I actually look forward to it!
