HELLO HELLO HELLOOOO!!!! I can't believe its been 6 days all ready! I'm pretty sure this has been the fastest week of my life. I can't even imagine what its going to be like when i get home. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself. To be honest, i thought i was going to be SOOOO homesick, and don't get me wrong, i miss my family, but not nearly as much as i thought i was going to. Which to me is a good thing!! It means that I'm focused on the work here, and am obviously having a good time! I really have grown so close to everyone here. I've fallen in love with the kids and am going to be so sad to leave them. I hope that i have impacted their lives in some way, and shown to them that they are loved. I'm going to miss being constantly hugged and kissed by them. I can't believe how they made such a big impact on me in such a little amount of time. They appreciate absolutely everything they have and are given. Its made me sooooooooo extremely grateful for everything i have. There is a little girl who is in first grade named Shobnum and she is the most snuggly, cutest, funniest girl i have ever met. i never want to leave her. She gives me the biggest kisses on my cheek and its so cute, hahaha oh my heck i can't even explain…. Well I'm having the time of my life with some of the best people i have ever met. I feel so blessed to have been introduced to YMAD. I really do think that YMAD has/ will always have an impact on my life. I <3 YMAD. :)
