Well, today is the day … my daughter and I are flying out to Guatemala to work on building homes with Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village program. I am both excited and nervous about this opportunity. It is such a great way to start the year – serving others, especially with my daughter.
It has been a funny experience getting ready for this trip. A month ago I was super excited and pretty nonchalant about preparations. As the trip has gotten closer, a little anxiety has crept in. I am not quite sure what to expect and the anticipation of the unknown makes me slightly nervous. Also, every letter that we have received from our Team Leader over the last few weeks has been reminding us about being “flexibile.” They have been emphasizing that nothing goes exactly as planned during a home build and particularly in a developing country where they may not have all the conveniences that we are used to. My kids always joke with me that I am OCD and a little bit of an “over planner,” so I am gearing myself up for “flexible Diane.” haha
So, ready or not …. Guatemala here we come!
