A Message from a Friend

I get my fair share of really great letters and emails from friends. Most have messages of encouragement, support, and love. I have a special file that I store them in so I can go back and reread them when I need to hear those words again. They are among the most special things to me these days. I received one yesterday that I wanted to share because it really resonated with me and because I think it will help shed some light as to what it's like to work in global development. She articulated it so well. (Note: I have omitted the personal things and left only those that are pertinent so the following email has been modified from the original.) Here is her message:

So I want to say a resounding THANK YOU to the giver of this letter and to all of my friends who are keeping in touch. I truly am grateful. Your support and your love mean more than you could possibly imagine.
