Julie and Martin the oldest members of Global Mobile Family also on Facebook, pulled the entire crew out yesterday after staying a couple of days in Portland. They found us on WarmShowers and were a wonderful family to host. It is fascinating to realize how much meeting people like this make you think about yourself, your values, your abilities. These people have such an amazing family and are so thoughtful about what they do that I found myself just watching. It wasn’t until the end of the stay I remembered to simply play with the boys.
I think that switching from work (my summer) to playing with people is something that should be so much easier. That is something I need to practice.
If you see them on the road, host them, stop and say hi, be kind, they are wonderful people.
