My name is Autumn Buzzell and I live and work in Ghana, West Africa with City of Refuge Ministries. Here, I run our school, Faith Roots International Academy, and get to be a part in rescuing and the healing of children who have been trafficked into the fishing trade, orphaned, abandoned, and those who just need a little extra loving. What an amazing gift this life is!

Feeling Old

I was just laying down before coming to get a little bit more work done before I get to bed and...well...I know it may be a little vain...but, I feel old!

Our intern, McKenzie, took some pictures of Edwin and I today and I just couldn't help looking at the wrinkles around my eyes. It got me thinking about my almost 30 years of life and even thinking about how much I feel like I've "matured" even since coming here. I feel like I've been stretched in so many ways, but parenting 22 children...well, it just makes one tired!

I know that I won't even be thinking about this in the morning, but just for a brief evening...I'm feeling old.

Here is the offending picture (even if it is cute!):

  1. That picture is adorable. Wouldn't have even noticed wrinkles unless you pointed them out. But you're still in your 20s so you have an excuse to do crazy things until February. What a way you are already spending your 29th year...in Ghana! So good.
