After a board meeting, and delivering some training for a local church on working with children who have additional needs - we managed to take some annual leave. This was thanks to the amazing generosity of friends.
When living by faith, it's very easy to feel guilty about taking a holiday abroad..... and hard to admit it! So we often qualify it with the "Gift of a friend" sentence, closely followed by the fact it's often cheaper to holiday abroad when there's only two of you going. We know many other full time workers who also feel guilty.... why is that?!
