Most of the time I blend in pretty well here. Yes, my skin is lighter than most, but since my hair is black, and my eyes are brown, I can usually go unnoticed. It isn’t until I mumble some verbless sentence that people realize I am the rumored ”gringa” living in town! To be honest, I hate drawing attention. I am proud to be an American, but I’d rather hide behind my over-sized purse and go about my business, than have it pointed out over and over again that I am different. In my house however, it’s another story! I wake up in my air-conditioned bedroom, I spend time watching cable TV with my kids, I talk to my mom on my iPod, and check my Facebook from my laptop. If it weren’t for the beads of sweat rolling down my face, I’d almost forget that I’m not in the United States!
This is a post written by hope and a future missions. If you need a reason today to be grateful for what you have, this is a good article to read. Many of us have a lot to be thankful for. The fact that we have a lot works against us all to often; (I have my hand up on this one) plenty to eat, a roof over our heads, a vehicle or two that run, and so many other blessings. Take time today to be thankful for what you do have.
