It's a strange thing to leave Indiana, fly across the ocean, have surgery in a foreign land, stay for almost a month, and return to a very conservative, traditional small town to work as a therapist in my little community hospital with THIS story. I'm sure there is a fairly large group of people who think I'm crazy, or insanely rich, or "out there" - none of these are true (well, maybe I'm a little "out there"). I'm confident these quiet people are glad all the same that my choice turned out well despite my insanity. We all make decisions for ourselves at times that make no sense to others and seem unusually odd, but that doesn't change our mind and we forge ahead. As I get older, I am more free-spirited than ever and these differences are the jelly on my toast.
Happy that my hubby of 30 years (on June 25th) is on board for it all. It's a blessing (and a foundation of groundwork) that we have a happy, thriving marriage and a healthy spirit for adventure.
Still thankful and overjoyed that I made this crazy decision! Keep chugging along my little titanium friends!
