grateful girl

i have great friends, literally all over the world!  today, i was encouraged 
by a conversation with a friend working in guatemala city, guatemala.
i love hearing about my cousin's life in amman, jordan.
a dear friend is currently visiting her sister in abu dhabi, uae.

  1. beth, loving your "wanderings"! This week I'm really grateful for my Mom coming to visit Boston for a day to help me organize and unpack my room so I can feel more settled. And now, the sun is out again!
