After some delay I made it to Colorado again and was able to spend my brother's birthday weekend with him. It was so special to be actually there, to meet more of his friends, and see snow! My brother is one of the kindest, most generous people I've ever met, and it was so wonderful to get to spend some more time with him. After having spent some time there, I can see why so many people fall in love with Colorado!
I'm just home for about two days before I head off on my last trip of this furlough; I'm going even farther north to Canada to see my third soul sister. In the midst of getting ready for that I am starting to pack and repack up my things for storage at my parents house. My time in the States is rapidly coming to a close and I know I won't be able to fit in everything I want to do, but I am determined to keep living each day to the full, and making every moment count.
