I wanted to post this separately - to acknowledge that despite my challenges - I have soooo much to be grateful for!
Yesterday was a great day - even though there were some difficult moments...
One of our graduate students successfully defended her PhD thesis on Tuesday and she brought me these wonderful gifts from Kenya (her home) - all hand crafted.... as a token of her appreciation of my support while she was here.
It's so wonderful to work here and watch our graduate student plaque grow as we order the name plates for each who have graduated since I've been here - a total of 12 so far.
Yesterday during my lunch time walks - by fluke I ran into CHEFKATLEANER who was walking from her hair appointment to the hospital to visit her grandmother. It was so cool and the day was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!
I picked up a few more items for my trip and packed more of my suitcase today ... feeling so excited - only 2 days of work left after today and 5 days to take off!!
