I always think my life is so boring! I'm alone. I have a full time job that I go to most everyday . I work, come home and relax,
eat dinner, watch a bit of TV and then off to bed. Get up next day and do it all over again. I do this 5 days a week. See, sounds boring doesn't it? I need to spice it up a little( a lot). Stuff that happens at work is not so boring though. I have this fabulous friend that I work with. She's from Africa and is one of the most beautiful women I know. I love her African accent. She has 5 children and is living as a single mom right now. Her husband is stuck in Africa trying to get over here. They have been trying for over 4 years to get him sponsored to Canada, so he can be with his family. I don't know what the hold up is? I know it will be a big celebration when the day comes and Rama is finally here. Any way I sit in the lunch room and visit with my wonderful African friend, and she tells me things that are going on in her life. Busy girl ( 5 kids). Working full time, then running her children to and from school and appointments. She wants to get another job so she can be able to travel. She has invited me to go with her to Africa next year for a month. Wow. what an adventure that would be. I would love to go. But as I listen to her busy life I feel tired and am thankful for my mundane boring life some times. I am thinking of going Africa though. I would love to go and experience new cultures and see more of this wonderful world that God created.

Some times I feel nervous about trying new things. I know I need to step out of my comfort zone. Take a risk and and go for it.
