Can you guess my answer to the above question? I have responded to these questions before, I believe it to be a wonderful exercise, for me as much as the children. Today while reading Laura's blog I was reminded of them again, loved her response and decided to write one of my own.
I was a big traveler before I married. One of my favourite destinations was Africa. I loved it so much I went back to live and work/teach for a couple of years in the mid 90s. In one sentence - it changed my life. As I often say to people, you go there to do good but in fact it is you who walk away the richer for the experience. And rarely a day goes by even now, in which my thoughts do not turn to the amazing continent and the deep impressions it made on me. A couple of years ago I did the scrap page with the quote "part of my heart remained ... my soul never left". I would love for my children to one day experience something like that.
