I'm sure by now you have heard about the devesating earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th, with a death toll of 5,000 and rising.
But what you may not know is my personal connection to the tragedy.
My husband, Remi Drozd, has been in Nepal since late February volunteering as a medical professional. With the recent earthquake and continued tremors and aftershocks, his work has become much more difficult and in higher demand.
I've been preparing for my visit to Nepal as well, and had a ticket to leave this Thursday....but the universe has other plans...
Due to the earthquake, I will be leaving this Saturday for India where I will be doing some meditation, volunteering, and waiting for the Nepal airport to reopen.
Like many of you, I experienced a wave of emotions over the past week with the news of the quake.
And it's an excellent reminder that we cannot control everything in our lives. My trip abroad will be very different now, but am grateful for my husband's safety and my opportunity to help.
You can help too! Please check out the the fund I have started with my sister-in-law for medical supplies, water, and other resources needed for the people of Nepal.
I will continue to post while I'm away and keep you all updated!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
