Jean is my hero!

Click on the title of this blog to get to an exciting travel blog from my hero, Jean. Jean and I were nuns together in Nunsense years ago, and she went from accountant to actress to director and theatre board member. After her husband passed away suddenly several years ago, did Jean sit around at home saying oh me oh my? NO. She went back to school and got her college degree and is heading to Rwanda to help set up a school being built there. She will live in Rwanda for all of 2009, and is posting to her blog at http://secondwindnewpaths.blogspot.com/ if you would like to follow her story. Of course, donations to the Rwanda School Project are more than welcome as well.

Jean is such a great example of living life to the fullest. I can't wait to read what it's like to adjust to life in her new home. And I have to say, on this snow day with ice on the way, it's not a bad time to head for warmer climes!
