What a fun trip it was! I was there for about 3 hours, but in that time, I was able to take a tiny peek into a whole new world of how these thousands and thousands of people live. It didn’t even seem like the U.S because hardly anyone spoke pure English. The food, the merchandise, and the culture all seemed so entirely different from what I’d experienced before. The women even looked different from American Women. They were fair skinned, with petite faces. They were very feminine and girlish which seemed different to me as well. It clearly had a very strong culture attached to this town, and it was such a joy to experience it and I felt alive with gratitude for the chance to be able to share a part of their lives for the short time that I did.

My favorite Jennie memory was probably 15 years ago when my daughter was struggling with her preteen years and was in crisis. Jennie had been there with her own daughter, and one morning I found hand picked flowers on my desk in a decorated vase from Jennie; just because she cared. She didn’t really even know me that well, but it was the kind of person she was – doing the kind of thing that people don’t forget. I never forgot, and it was an example of kindness that I hope to follow more often than not. Those are the kinds of things I think most of us want to be remembered for.
