But today is another special day. Yes, there are only four months until my birthday, but that is not it. A year ago from today I left for Uganda, and for six weeks that unexpectedly changed my life.
Like most people, my life in the last year did not go at all the way I had planned. And this next year is already looking to be that way as well. But I wouldn't change it for anything. I have seriously loved every single minute of it, especially the fact that I've basically lived out of a bag since I packed up for Namengo.
