At this time of year I’m usually absorbed in getting myself ready to teach another year of high school, but if you’ve followed my past blog posts you know I will not being going back this year, so that’s freed me up a bit. Instead, I’ve been filling my time with home improvement projects and giving a new life to my book. What this all amounts to is that I’ve been home alone and wrapped up tightly in my own cocoon of me. This is the introvert Terri. She cares deeply about others, but if nobody checks on her, she tends to lose track of the world and just sort of fold up inside herself.
Ok, I’m done referring to myself in the third person. I just wanted to try it out for a bit, but it’s going to get creepy if I take it any further.
Thankfully, I’m about to experience a takeover of my attentions, and I really need it. Next week I’m going to Guatemala on a mission trip. I will be building houses, presenting vacation bible school activities to children, and hanging out with a team of 16 other people, and getting very little time for my cocoon, and I’m glad for that. I love cocoon time, but now it’s time for me to reach out and love others. I cannot wait to see what God has planned.

I may or may not be posting to this blog while I’m there. It depends on the demands on my time and how well wi-fi works where we will be staying. If I don’t post for a bit, check out the above link, to which I will definitely be posting, as it is one of my roles on the team to update the team’s blog.
