Today I say goodbye. I’m awful at goodbye. Leaving won’t really hit until I step of the plane in Ethiopia. (Or maybe even a week or two after.) But I immensely enjoyed visiting with my family and friends. I love you all.
I also want to give the sincerest thanks to everyone who has been a part of this with me. We all know what it took to get here! I appreciate so much the love, support and tokens of farewell you’ve given me. (Okay… to my parents, it may have been a little more than a few tokens.) Thank you!! My gratitude goes beyond words.
And that’s all for the sentimental stuff. It’s time to take one of my limited number of hot showers and catch my plane to Atlanta. I can’t wait to meet all the volunteers!
