My morning gratitude for:
- Florence, Italy, where I loved for more than a year as a sophomore at Pepperdine.
- The church people in Osaka, Japan, that I got to serve, and in turn taught me through my summer internship and mission trip back in 2002.
- Pizza. I’m feeling very nostalgic for college today, probably because I’m leading a teen retreat this weekend. Nonetheless, I am hungry for pizza, and I love getting to this carb loaded, only good for my soul but definitely not the body tomato sauce pie.
