"What's the deal?" you may ask, and I have to be honest... I've signed into my account, sat down to write, and...nothing. I couldn't think of anything entertaining, interesting, funny...nothing!! Which is strange because I'm hilarious, (kidding).
I know what you're thinking, "meg, you're in Africa! And, you couldn't think of one thing to write!"
All I can say is this: I've been here officially for 6 months, and I've had my ups and downs. Moments of hope for this country, and moments where I've had to bite my tongue, turn and just shake my head. Luckily, the good moments outweigh the negative ones, and without the clash of culture and point-of-views, how would I grow? I've had moments where I've had to walk alone, follow my heart, and know this is what I've meant to do. Moments where I've longed to go home, and moments where I've never wanted to go back. Moments where I've wanted to yell at God while street kids are running after me screaming my name, begging for food, and moments where I've looked up and praised him. It's a roller coaster of emotions.
While I was going through pictures the other day, I came across this:
This was taken at an orphanage that we helped restore. It is probably my favorite picture yet because it captures a culture and moment so perfectly. These four boys are all orphans. The eldest, who is about 16, is touching these young boys so gently and lovingly as these younger boys cling to him. It's pure love.
Peace, Love, and Time is FLYING By!!!
