Being back is good, I ate a medium pizza all by myself for lunch today. The flight home was quiet and uneventful, it gave me plenty time to think about the entire trip. I only shared a few stories with you all as it was normally late and there was much to do to get ready for the following day.
I don’t really have a favorite moment to share with you because there were so many that stick out. Just the overall ability to have such a big, positive impact on so many is what makes one feel good about what they have accomplished. I did this blog for those of you that donated to follow along and be able to see the fruits of your gifts, in the smiles and thankfulness on the faces of the people that we touched together.
If I had not been the recipient of so many great donated items these joyous occasions would not have been possible. These accomplishments are due to your generosity and your giving.Thank you to KCUMB for helping to make this happen and from me to you all, Thank You, and from the children of the towns we visited and who’s lives we changed together in a positive way, “Muchas gracias de todo corazon, has hecho muy feliz con nosotros!”
