A little piece of gold

I feel like such a nerd, sometimes, getting so excited about each step along this process.  But, you know, it IS exciting.  And, I AM allowed to feel what I feel.  Plus, I am a cute nerd, so I think it helps my cause. ;)

This evening, my fellow volunteers and I had our first conference call, along with Friends Volunteer Coordinator and a past Honduras volunteer.  It was cool to just chat about different aspects of NPH and get more of our questions answered.  Having the past volunteer on the phone to speak from personal experience is like a tiny window into what our lives will be like when we begin our year.  Each volunteers' experience and journey is uniquely theirs, but from the outside looking in and not knowing anything than what I already know, ANY new piece of info is like gold.

I am finally in MN visting my mom, where I will be for longer than just a week.  Don't get me wrong, it has been so amazing, and I have cherished every moment that I have had so far with my family and friends.  But, since the beginning of September, I really haven't had one place that I can really settle and relax.  I can't wait to be in Honduras because I will be in ONE place for a whole year.  Oh, how nice that will be!

Of course, with all of this comes the realization that at the end of this month here with my Momma... things will move quick and my life will really change.  But, for now, I am trying to focus on the present and enjoy this amazing time that I do get (or have gotten) with my amazing family and friends.

And, because blogs are more interesting with pictures, I thought I would show you what I look like really excited:

:) Peace and Love.
