I have spent most of this afternoon reminiscing about my time in Costa Rica. I lived there for almost a year from 2006 to 2007.
I loved being in the jungle in the middle of what seemed like nowhere with extremely generous and kind-hearted people. Watching monkeys swing through the trees outside of the shack I was living in delivered daily entertainment. Plucking plantains from those same trees brought me daily nourishment.
Life was simple.
Joy was abundant.
I am thankful to have these memories and so many more to reflect back on.
