Contrasts

Today I…

Picked up all remaining trash and cleaned at our former CDA II
Made decisions upon hearing test results from CDA III (parasite outbreak)

Chatted with friends under their bridge home
Had dealings with the relative of an ex-president of Bolivia

Practiced guitar for church on Saturday
Practiced piano for church on Sunday

Talked with a friend from the street about family problems
Talked with a middle class volunteer about family problems

Coordinated two babies going in for immunizations
Comforted one of them through a rough afternoon

Talked with a teenager from the street about her pregnancy
Consulted with a midwife-in-training about risks of the pregnancy

Barely ate all day
Had a deliciously filling dinner

Took note of the frigid weather in North America
Appreciated temperatures in the upper 70s here


I think variety keeps life interesting - don't you?
