It has become more apparent with my time here in Romania that there is little that separates us from each other. Last week we had a team building day at the site of what will ultimately be the children’s place. It is a donated site that needs much renovation but the area to house the campers is ready and the first group of children who have lost a loved went off for a week of fun and healing. Eventually the inpatient children’s hospice unit will be housed on this property. It is the most serene location out in the country. And yes, lots of Romanian food. No hamburgers and hot dogs at this outing.
Then off to one of my nursing colleagues homes out in the country for a day. Will be a day that stays with me forever. We ate for hours and everything made came from the land. The gardens are unbelievable. Everyone in the country lives off the land mostly out of necessity but what a healthy necessity. We walked through the country eating fruits off the trees, felt like a kid. Life is good and healthy in Romania!
