Hit Over the Head

I feel like I've been hit over the head with a 2 x 4.

I am at Camp Sangre Valiente ( a camp for children with bleeding disorders and their siblings). I am so out of my element that it is almost too much to bear.

The first day I wanted to run away! I am not kidding!

I am a counselor for the younger girls. I have boys, so being around drama and giggling, etc. is very foreign to me, eventhough I taught this age for years.

But I know the Lord led me here for a reason.

To let go.

To experience something new.

To get out of my comfort zone.

To see how passionate members of the industry are in loving these kids and giving of themselves competely.

Isn't that what Christ calls us to do?

To love unconditionally?

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. Skype

2. strong coffee

3. sunscreen

4. bug spray

5. homemade desserts
