It’s common to fall in love with Thailand. It’s hard not to. But I’m falling in love in Thailand. Seriously. One child at a time. One adult at a time, one idea at a time.
Every day we travel from our hotel to the children’s home. Once there, we’re instantly enveloped by the younger kids who compete, it seems, in expressions of affection. Then we play!
This morning we began with photography lessons. Augusto and I were just amazed at our eager pupils. They handled the cameras with tenderness. And then shared their knowledge with each other with equal tenderness.
Tonight was karaoke night and time again to put work aside and fall in love with all of the incredible people I’m blessed to be with.
And I’ve fallen hard for the idea that love is power. And there is none greater.
