  1. Quote of the Day: “Gratitude – appreciation, giving thanks – is a really powerful practice.” Pure TRUTH, Taylor! *hugs*

  2. You’re amazing! Have I mentioned that lately? I am in awe of your courage and commitment to follow your dreams and do this work.

    I miss you!

  3. Your posts bring us all to Uganda. Thanks for the reminder that “faith without works” is not enough. Help us know how we can be part of forwarding your work. Help us learn how not to be overwhelmed by the needs of this world. I love you.

    1. I love you Aunt Lis!! Stayed tuned for a post with some ideas about how everyone can be involved in pushing this work forward. xoxo

  4. Another amazing, insightful, heartfelt post Taylor! I inhale every word and savour the impressions, emotions and adventure.

    Are you climbing Kilimanjaro on your own or with a group? And have you chosen your route yet? I’m sending bags of encouragement as you train. If I can give you a single tip….it’s to try and get at least one altitude hike in before you go. Getting in shape is great but try to get some hills training as well. I found the descent after summiting particularly challenging. If possible, I urge you to camp in the Bowl before the last stretch to the top. The night sky, the glacier and the mouth of the volcano are not to be missed. Plus, it means you don’t have to wake in the wee hours to scale the last bit in the pitch dark either! That’s my 2cent thoughts on your adventure to the top of Africa! It was and remains one of my Top Five best experiences. xx

    1. Thank you, Bette Anne!! Always appreciate your notes.

      And big thanks for the Kili advice! I have been doing weekly hikes — nothing major, but trying to get in some hills, as you suggest. Planning on a longer day hike in the Rwenzori mountains in December before I go as well, so that should help. I’m doing 7-days on the Machame route — the most well-traversed. I’ll be climbing with 3 other lady fellows from the Malawi group (plus two additional hikers, TBD, since the groups are six total). Can’t wait!! Any other advice?? Email me!! xo

  5. Hello my dear little Sunflower! Uncle Owen and I couldn’t be more proud of you if we tried. My morning gratitude meditation always includes you and your work- I hear what you’re saying and will ramp up my “good intentions”! Sending our love and light always!
