Each week, Candid Carrie hosts an event – Phriday Photo Phiesta!
This is my first time playing along – I thought I’d give it a try as part of NaBloPoMo.
This is one of my new favorite pictures.
This is Kim, Brad, Jonathan & I in Nairobi last month, on the last day of our trip. Kim, Brad & I live near each other in MI – and have become good friends through our shared Kenya experience. Jonathan is our team leader, and lives just outside of Hilton Head, NC. He is on staff at Harvesters International part time – an great ministry. All three are amazing people and truly were a bright spot in an already-very-bright mission. This is my fabulous foursome in Kenya. We had so much fun, and laughed until we had tears. Until we ran out of breath. Until our abs hurt.
We can be goofy around each other. And real. We can also talk about bodily functions in a way that I can’t do with ANYONE else. There’s just something about traveling to a remote location, away from everyone else that builds bonds.
But here’s the thing – even if I was at home, in my comfort zone, surrounded by my normal life: I would still choose to hang out with these dorks. Because they accept me as my dorky self.
Have a great Friday, and an even better weekend. Don’t forget to stop by Candid Carrie’s blog to see who else is playing along!
