Christmas!

Hello everyone! Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!

Well, I am sitting in the Denver airport, waiting for a flight to take me to Wichita. I was supposed to get there yesterday around 11am but instead will arive tonight around 7pm. It's been quite the travel experience but I am staying positive. I think in times like this, when weather makes it difficult to get from one place to another, it is important to remember it is out of our control! There is nothing that I can do and therefore I should not stress out about things. I have definitely had a lesson in living in the present the past couple of days. :)

Some good news: It poured like crazy all day Thursday and neither of the roofs we built had any leaks, so that is great!!! Unfortunately, Thursday was when I was going to take all of my pictures, so I didn't get around to that with the craziness, so I'll have to get those when we return in January.

Way back at the end of CTI, there was a talent show. One of the Corps Members, Anthony, performed a song that he wrote about AmeriCorps, so if you'd like to check it out (and I definitely suggest you do!), here is the link. I think it's a great song, regardless of whether you're in AmeriCorps or not!

(you'll have to copy/paste the address b/c i can't get the link to work, sorry!)

I am excited to get back to Biloxi on the 2nd to start work again. I can't believe I just left, although it is definitely time for a break. There will be 60-115 volunteers per week living with us in the church throughout January...it's a "blitz-build" month. We're going to get so much done!

I am wishing everyone a joyful holiday season, and I hope you are with those you love. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
