Two weeks from today I will officially be in Haiti.  This has been a trip that has been in the planning stages for me since December (although I have been contemplating this trip for over a year).  One of my favorite quotes is "when I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say I used everything you gave me".  I hope that working with others (children) is one of my talents and I hope to use this in Haiti.  (I'm not sure they need my talents in reading, eating, and napping although I'm willing to share these too.)  When I discussed going to Haiti over a year ago with Jane, she mentioned they would really like a teacher to go.  I figured this was my chance to get "out of the box" and do something unique and challenging.  As a person approaches middle-age (ack!) it's hard to know exactly where to focus your volunteer efforts.  I already volunteer at my children's school and church.  These are no-brainers!  What else can I do, and how can I do it?  These are questions I have been asking myself.  I'm looking at my week in Haiti almost as an eye-opening quest to find these answers.  Hopefully through a lot of hardwork, sweat, and being out of the comfort zone I will find them.  If not, well then I'm hoping to at least sweat off a few pounds!
