What have I learned from my experience in Bolivia? PRESENCE! And I mean being present, as in totally in the present moment and also aware of my presence at the hogar. I was asked not too long after I came back what my role was while I was down there. It’s been a year since I’ve been back, and I still haven’t got a clue, but I do know that God wanted me to be present to those girls…to just be there is enough-working and studying side by side with them. I am enough, and if I truly believe that, then hopefully those girls can believe that as well. That they are beloved daughters of God, just as I am. I am not going to change the world, the hogar, or anything that is wrong with society, but I am enough. My presence is enough, and my impact-frankly-doesn’t even matter compared to the love that we shared for our brief moment in time together. I continue to take that love and that PRESENCE with me everywhere I go.
