Follow your heart....

                                       Just look at these photos.......
                                       who could resist a face like that......not our girl Meg...
                                        she is off to Haiti..again in MAY this will be her longest stay yet...
                                          3 weeks...no showers, no comfortable bed...no phone calls home...
                                        one would think at 20 years old that might be torture....
                                       not for her...for her it is a calling if you will & for me it is something I must get used to...
                                cause one thing I know for sure is....
                                            Haiti has stolen Meg's heart....x0

The people of Haiti are wonderful. I was born there and spent my growing up years there as my parents were missionaries. The best years of my life! It's wonderful to see young people with a heart for the children of this country.

I would like to wish you, first of all, the greatest year, since so many of your dreams are about to come true and I truly wish you the best, eventhough I do not know you in person; but I guess that when a person decides to share a bit of her life for years with total strangers, and those on the other side decide to follow those flashes willingly, effortlessly and eagerly we kind of become friends. I´m from Portugal, I do not post very often but I follow your blog daily, anticipating with excitment what the news are going to be this time, never disappointing and always revigorated and inspired. Secondly I’d like to thank you for letting a door open for us, so that we could appreciate through the years the way you’ve evolved into someone so inspiring, so creative, so meticulous, so spontaneous, but above all, so genuinely true to yourself. Thank you, for I have also grown with you. I’ll keep on coming here, visiting you, hoping that if you come to my country one day, I’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you personally, opening then the doors of my house to you and hoping that you’ll feel at ease, just like I do, everytime I come to your blog.I invite you to visit mine as well http://cottoncandy-peaches.blogspot.com/
Cheers to you! Keep on being very Happy!

Hi!

You must be so proud. And should be. youngs today as before set their mind on nonesence usually.
Your post is lovely. I anderstand very well how she have fallen in love with the country and it's children. They do need our help.

Now to you tile story. Laughed out lound when you told you would have kiled your friend if she had not brought you one as well. LOL:)) Some things are made for loving but not nessisary on first sight. The things we learn to love we keep the longest also.

And thank you ever so much for your compliments. They make me smile like a star.

I love this...I love her heart...at age 19 my heart was for Africa. I dreamed of the day I would live there. I thought after college I would go and never come back. But I never did make it to my african home. Yes, it felt like home to me, even though I had never been. I studied the culture in college. My minor was African studies. My B.A degree was Food & Nutrition. I was going to work in a health clinic with Mothers and babies with the Peace Corps. I know your daughter's heart. I'm thankful you let her go. My parents did not support my desire to go. I will keep her in my prayers(and you!)

Followers Thank you all so much,your comments just make my day!
