Heather and husband, David

What did I do over the holidays? I joined my husband on a medical mission to Honduras. For the past 27 years, he has traveled to Central America with Sharing Resources Worldwide to help crippled children for a week by giving them the orthopedic surgery they need.

This year, the team screened more than 500 kids and gave 36 children (and their families) live-changing care. I--being non-medical--washed and sterilized LOTS of instruments to keep the team rolling.

But eventually, I was able to scrub in to help! In all, it was an incredibly exhausting but compassionate and loving experience! Here's a snapshot-- in my hat (while my husband is wearing his University of Wisconsin one).


Liz shares a glass of champagne with an elephant in Elephant World in Thailand. 

It is a sanctuary for old, sick, abused, retired or rescued elephants. Most of the elephants have lived very hard lives and t come there to retire in peace. They offer the unique opportunity of interacting  with these gentle animals, while learning about the Asian elephant. Their motto is “We work for the elephants, the elephants do not work for us!”

I have my fears but apparently it is not of elephants!  I had no fear.  I loved them. 

They loved the mud baths we gave them.  It was the best of the trip
