Wake up. Drink coffee. Eat. Work. Eat more. Work more. Eat more again. Shower. Sleep. Repeat.
Everyone has a routine, whatever that may be. We wake up each day and do what we have to, and if we're lucky, we get to mix that with some of what we want to do.
I've been blessed recently to get involved with some incredible people doing some truly amazing things. I have the opportunity to be a part of something exponentially bigger than myself. I'm getting involved with a non-profit called Global Connections Kenya Link. Their mission is to connect communities here in the states to communities in Kenya, Africa. They take high school students to Kenya to introduce them to children their own age. These students do service projects in Kenya to improve life in some way for the villages they visit. They are transformed by the experience and come back to their home community to share what they've learned.
I had no idea I would be so interested in facilitating the connection between two different groups of people from two very different places, but it's sparked something in me. And guess what!! I'm going to Kenya with them next year!!
More information about the trip can be received by signing up at https://www.gcklink.org/kenya-2020.html
I've found it, Loves. Something bigger than me. Something I never imagined myself doing. Something with purpose and value I can join in.
I'll share more information as it comes, but please reach out if you have any questions. FYI - there is a fundraising option to make the trip completely free if you're interested in going.

Working a full time job, raising two daughters, attempting to have a social life, trying to make my family proud, and trying to make myself proud are things I do every day. I'm now beginning my journey of giving. This is step one.
