Lessons From Brazil

As many of you know, I got back this week from a whirlwind trip to Salvador, Brazil for the wedding of my beloved nephew and his wonderful wife. I was only there for a short time but it was life-changing. So I decided to start a short blog series called "Lessons from Brazil" to share about this trip, to help me to process it, and to inspire you.

I am not crazy about long blog posts, and I realized that to try to even summarize all of the lessons and adventures of this Brazil trip in one place would futile. So, I'm breaking it up. I don't know how many short posts I'll have in this series, but I learned so much that there might be several. This won't be a travelogue or facts about my trip, as we pretty much traveled straight there and back, intentionally didn't see any sights, and just enjoyed the wedding and the people there.

I'm also hoping that the posts may inspire you to realize again--in a fresh way--how blessed you are, how abundant your life is, and how rewarding it can be when you live in a place of gratitude. As always, I will covet your comments and observations!

Yes, you're right, Kim! I guess in my case it took a 2X4 to really ram home the point...I feel like I'm in a space of wonder and extreme appreciation.

Thank you for your comment, My Queen, and for all of the Big Love you share with me here and on your blog. I've just been lurking there lately but reading and loving every post. xoO
