I’m Thankful For…

I have so many things in my life to be thankful for and it is one of my favorite parts of the Holiday season – it really makes me think about others – in a way that definitely needs to be done year-round.

Just to name a few 😉 But this Thanksgiving I have something very special to be thankful for! In about one week I will be heading to Haiti with the Haiti Medical Mission of Wisconsin for a week-long trip. Words cannot even describe how thrilled I am to have this opportunity. I cannot even begin to imagine how this experience will open my eyes, changes some habits and remind me to be so grateful, everyday, for what I have. I’m sure I will have lots to share with you upon my return!

On a similar note, Holly is raising $$ to build a well in Cambodia – please go and show some love if you haven’t already – even if it is only $10. We are so fortunate to live in a place where we have access to clean water on a daily basis. So you can think about that….. 🙂
