Monrovia Day 4 Morning reflection

I cannot believe it is day 4 already! Time goes by fast when you are busy!

When I married  Ed a while back, he mended my broken heart. I become a whole and happy person. Little do I know that there is more to life than just meeting your soul mate.

When we did our first humanitarian medical mission in the jungle of Vietnam, I discovered that my life was not whole. The first time that I saw the big smile that appears on the face of an old man who was able to see again, tears came to my eyes. Then I realize that I had a part of my life still missing and with this humanitarian work where I am able to help people who otherwise can not get help from anybody else, I walked away from that trip feeling truly a whole person. A hole that I did not know existed in me got filled with humanitarian work.

When I got back to the US, I decided to do more. And the more I give, the more I receive. I begin to feel so much better about myself.  Something in me changed. I just became a happier and happier person. Life has more meaning.

And as I think I can’t be any happier, I go on another medical humanitarian trip, I help more people, I am even happier. Happiness for me is no longer watching my kids grow or having some sort of material possession, happiness for me now is to work side by side with my husband and make somebody else life much better.

I pray we will be able to help more people today. That there is no complication in the operating room for any of the patients today.

We grow every day. I don’t know what awaits me tomorrow, but today is truly a blessing to be who I am, where I am and be doing what I am doing today in Liberia.

And for that, I am truly grateful.
