Nebraskan weather may be getting colder by the day, but what we lack in warm weather, we make up in warm hearted guests. In the past month we have had the opportunity to host a few of our friends, either those we’ve just met or those who we’ve known from back home. When we looked back on our month, we found that it seemed like so long ago that our first visitors had come by. Everyone, from former LVC participants to family members, blessed us with their presence. So many of our days, we can feel like we are caught up in work or our other responsibilities, that we often forget how amazing it feels to have the company of people outside of our quaint community around us.
We’ve even befriended someone from another volunteer corps just down the street, and while that may seem like something so small to acknowledge, the feeling of having a neighbor we can laugh with and identify with as we all embark on this new experience through our year in Omaha is something that warms our hearts through the snowy nights.
As we continue our journey, we look forward to more of these guests and hopefully we will continue to bring them as much joy as they so often are bringing us.
