Well – Katie has been gone now for over a week – and while it has been hard for her to send updates – I know the team is having a blast and is safe. I was sent a newsletter by their team this morning – and there was a quote from Katie in it…I thought I’d share it with all of you – some of her biggest supporters!!
“There have been so many times that I’ve been looking out the window and I want to cry. Not because I’m in this hard place or even the people that I’m seeing -and I thought that if I ever had tears it would be because something was so sad. There are people everywhere in the world that choose joy and there are people who don’t and what I’m learning is that there is a universal language among those that make a concious decision to choose joy.”
I also found this photo that was made for Katie 45 days prior to her arrival in Ethiopia…very thoughtful! (and yes – my sister is an aspiring -yet struggling – ukelele owner)
