My beautiful eldest sister, returns home from Costa Rica today....for Christmas :) She spends her life giving it up for others...she takes care of the forgotten. the dirty. the persecuted. the poor. she takes them in, no matter the age or race, or gender...and loves them with passion, mercy and grace.
it is easy to forget what she does. she is my sister who lives in central america, putting together an organization. but then i see her pictures, and hear the stories, and read her blog...and i'm inspired. it is hard for her to be away from our family, but she can't walk away from her calling. i am very thankful for the excuse of the holidays...it brings my anna home :)
