Thankful day one

I am going to begin a series of post of things that I am thankful for in our lives here in Ghana. Please follow along for the journey.

Today I am thankful for a quiet morning at an “Exploring Meditative Arts” retreat (that was conveniently located just down the street from my house).

It was a beautiful time to connect with other women and seek our creator God through His creation.  I was reminded that like this bud He is at work in me.

And we got a chance to use our creativeness that reflects Him.

Then the kids & I had a rip-roaring good time at a Ghanian 2 year olds birthday party – that included cotton candy, popcorn, trampoline, bounce house, face painting, sparklers and lots of dancing. (I can’t say for sure but I don’t think this was a typical birthday party.)

My friend Nadia.  (it was her son’s party)

Also some of the women who attended the party.  They wanted to take a selfie with me so I reciprocated (they thought it was hilarious! and I was proud that I’ve finally figured out what to do in these situations).

I’m glad Ghanians love to dance because so do I!
