Changed Forever

I am back from India and don't even know where to start describing my experience. I loved it. My heart completely broke for the children and people of India - what beautiful people. If I could go back tomorrow, I would. If I could have stayed, I would. Varanasi was not an easy place to be, but the joy in sharing a smile or giving a child the first hug he has probably ever received is indescribable and worth everything to me.

There are so many stories that I would love to share. Sweet Eric has been the best listener in the world the last 3 days...I think he is beginning to wonder whether anything will ever be on my mind again. You know what? I hope not. I know I have to fit back into routine to get work done and I certainly don't want to forsake precious relationships I have here in Greensboro, but my prayer is that India remains fresh in my mind as long as it takes for me to go back.

This is a typical "house" that some of the kids we worked with come from. The boys I am with in the picture above are orphans, don't have a home; they live at the railroad stations.



Traffic was WILD - a riot!! So glad I didn't have to do any of the driving! It was hilarious.... :)
