As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate more lovingly, our own.  -Margaret Mead

This quote reminds me to be thankful for the small ways I have learned about other cultures.  I am grateful for friends who have lived and still live in other countries, and for their willingness to answer questions and share their experiences.  I am grateful for life in a large urban area where I have access to different kinds of food, can hear different languages, and can see different people all around me.  I am grateful for my Get HOPE Global work, which gives me a tiny glimpse into the lives of women who are very different from me but who also have so many things in common.  I am even thankful for YouTube, giving glimpses of things I could never otherwise see.  I look forward to upcoming chances to do some more international travel and experience firsthand what God is doing in the world.
