my parents first told me we were going to Ireland I felt very excited.
I was eight at the time, so I remember some confusion, like why
couldn't I spend the night with my best friend anymore."
favorite memories from the past twelve years in Ireland are family
prayer times. My father often calls us all together for family prayer
when he feels we've been struggling. We've never had to fight a
respect my parents so greatly. Never have I heard my mother complain
about hard labor. She has taught me to do everything without murmuring
or complaining. My father has taught me to be a servant at all times
and to jump at the chance to do something great for God. He often
says, "Don't make permanent decisions in temporary situations"
and to "Have a passion for God and compassion for people."
I miss my family in the States dearly, there's no where I would
rather be than Ireland."
