I wish everyone appreciation, reflection, and joy. A time to remember those we lost and a time to treasure those we can hold. While “Thanksgiving” means different things to different people... I think we can all agree on these two “g’s”- “gratitude and giving back” as universal forms of love that we should do everyday!
Part of Travel Plus Them is just that- the two “g’s”. Being a global citizen is not just experiencing the world... it’s also sharing all that you can with others. Thanks to our friends who make this an annual tradition, we too were able to experience this while on vacation!
Shyla and Shriya packed an entire suitcase of clothes, toys, and books and donated to the local orphanage in Costa Rica. Due to COVID- we were unable to go inside and play. While my girls were saddened by the tears they heard, they were overjoyed by the hands the kids held out through the gate to hug them!
To protect the privacy of the children- I cannot share their faces. But I can share the name of the orphanage we visited- Hogarcito San Juan Bosco.
So everyday, appreciate all that you have and those that you love. Please give whatever you can to those who don’t have. Giving is the greatest gift of all!
