Here and Now

I often wonder how I will look back on this time in my life.

If God gives me 60 more years, what kind of lens will I see my former self through?

These adventures to come...I pray they shape me into a woman of faith and courage.

May God allow my doubts to move me to action; may my quandries lead to wisdom, my fear to love.
May my gifts and energy not be wasted on worrying about 'what if's' and 'what could have been'.

May I look back, whether it be tomorrow or many years from now, and know that I have tread my own path and all is as it should be.

I'm finishing up my final week of classes at VCU and preparing myself for a new university, in a new town, in a new country.  I will call Kurdistan (Northern Iraq) my home for at least a year, and I am looking forward to the many adventures/challenges I will face.  I am excited in knowing that I will continue to grow as an educator, and am looking forward to learning from a new group of students!

I head out in the beginning of October, with a quick stop in Istanbul. Stay tuned for lots o' pictures and sarcastic ramblings!
