The Smiles that Refresh my Soul

Photo Contest Entry #31 -Jamaica - The land of putting your life in perspective

When I go to Jamaica I always come back humbled and have my values in order. Jamaican people are the nicest, friendly, hardworking and appreciative folks I know.

I always visit the flea markets (because their craftsmanship is like no other) but also to bring suckers and school supplies to the children.

Jamaican's really have nothing (but love and smiles) and when you bring supplies for school children they are so appreciative and thankful.

I always go back home to Wisconsin and feel so re-energized, happy and humbled because I made a difference and a impact on the lives of the Jamaican children.

Jamaica is my happy place. I have traveled the whole world and have found no place to compare to Jamaica.

I would love to win the opportunity to go again and fill my soul with love!
