I pass this view every day, 6 to 10 times. It’s the view on the way from refugee camp Moria to the Shower Power house. Usually I don’t get the change to have a real look at it, to really enjoy it. I try to make some contact with the people you just picked up from the camp or drive back, even though it’s not easy because I don’t speak Farsi or Arabic, and they don’t speak Dutch or English. Still we get pretty far together with body language, which is cool to notice.
Today has been the sixth day in a row. Everyday totally different from the one before. Some days it’s going so smooth, even though there are 7 children playing around. Some days it’s chaos, even though there are only a few lady’s around...
Everyday has beautiful moments, things that make you keep moving and motivated. Happy faces, smiles from shy children, people that get emotional because they are grateful to be with us. ⠀⠀
Also, everyday it’s tiring. I put ALL of my energy in this day, all my positive energy, so they will have the best experience I can give them. ⠀⠀
Now I just drove back the last lady’s of the week. A full last shift I can say. 2 mothers with 9 children in total. I don’t think it could have been more chaotic! ⠀⠀
And now, in the way back, I finally have the change to enjoy this stunning view. And be grateful I can go to a place with a bed, a door to my own room and a shower I can have whenever I like.
Don’t forget to be grateful, for everything, every time again
