WE are in a new year... WE get to start fresh again...We get to create new memories, WE...WE... WE...WE...WE!
This year has been quit good to me. Nothing but positive love and memories to share. But, don't get me wrong. Mr. Ugly has tried to rear its ugly head in and out since the first of Jan. WE try to hide, but they always find us. This year I am going to meditate. I am going to make sure that I am balanced. That I am not taken for granted and that I am heard. So far, it has been quit the challenge (people get to comfortable easily).
As I type this blog out I can't help but look at my hands. THEY ARE GIGANTIC!
Ok, now I am back... My vacations so far consist of Chiclayo. This is a pretty big city in the north part of Perù. It is very desert like. We visited their biggest outdoor market (which had a guy selling snake oil and people who had live snakes), to the museum of Sipàn in Lambayeque, and to a black sand beach in Pimentel. It was a nice 4 day 3 night trip. I had fun and got to eat ice cream every single day (not really possible to do while in Lima). It was a nice time to hang out with the community too.
Now, I wait for what I have been waiting for all this time... RETREAT. WE will be having our beginning of the year retreat hopefully starting tomorrow or Saturday. I am mostly excited because Brother Bill Hugo will be sharing it with us. Pray for us as we enter into reflection for the next 5 days. Reflection of the past 6 or 18 months, reflection of who we are and what we can offer, reflection of going back to the US, reflection of what our next year will be for us and what we want our next year to be for us.
