Right now I feel like I don’t want to leave. I know I really do but right now I don’t. It’s not that I don’t want to go to India, I’m just having trouble leaving everyone I love here. When I said goodbye to everyone at IPS today I thought “why on earth am I doing this?” I know I have good reasons and I’ll love the experience but it’s hard for me to leave the familiar for the unknown.
Photographic evidence of my new haircut, for those who were asking:
That’s all I have to say for now because my mind is kind of numb. I will probably post next from India!
Good luck Amy! We will all miss you!
That’s your heart telling you not to leave, but it is also your heart telling you to go. It knows best, keep following it. I am so proud of you and what you are about to do. Realize that many “talk” about doing this kind of thing but few (not in your family though, kudos to you also Mary) actually do it. You are in my prayers for a safe trip. That smile and your heart will bring good things to many who need it, and you will be stronger when you get back.
Enjoy the food, the people, life!
You are going to have a FABULOUS experience! Be safe and take care. We are all looking forward to reading about your adventures! xoxo
I know you will adjust wonderfully to your new environment. You have always had a special “way” with children and I know that those in the orphanage will feel blessed to have known you…just as I always have and will.
I adore your haircut dahhhling!
