Oh. My. Goodness. How can 6 months have passed since my last post? I’ve had so many amazing and wonderful adventures…I guess I just get caught up in experiencing the moment rather than writing about it. Forgive me – stories to follow, I promise. 🙂
It’s time to make some changes, starting with this unplanned, in the moment post! I can’t think of a more appropriate time …let me explain.
I am currently spending my last night (on this trip!) in Americus, Georgia. Where’s that? Yeah…you’ll need to check the map. 🙂 Americus is a quiet but lovely town in southwestern Georgia. Look!
I arrived over a week ago right ahead of Hurricane Irma (it literally started raining as I unpacked the car…). I have spent the past week at the headquarters of Habitat for Humanity. It’s been fantastic!
During the first few days, I spent time in the office with some great people preparing for the big moment… On Thursday, the event started! This was the first of several sessions where Habitat for Humanity Global Village Volunteer Team leaders are coming together to meet, talk, learn, share and recommit to serving the mission of this organization. We were given an extra special reception at the historic Rylander Theatre downtown:
On that first night, the initial 17 team leaders to attend recertification training got to know each other and learn more about the roots of Habitat. We were treated to a special showing of “Briars in the Cotton Patch” – a movie describing the roots of Habitat set in the Civil Rights era. I had no idea…definitely worth a watch., look for it
Over the next two days, we attended talks that ranged in content but had the overall impact of bringing this group of individuals together as one cohesive unit with a common goal. I feel so privileged to be a part of this crowd! And it is reaffirming in a multitude of ways
So this day seems fitting to kick off a renewed commitment to posting updates, as I am reenergized about the future and my renewed commitment. I can’t wait to be the best I can be, to serve to the best of my ability, and to make the most of every moment that life grants me.
Thanks for joining me on the journey and having faith. Our best is yet to come. ❤️
