Why summer can't come... APO

Many people keep praying until school is done, but for me that's the last thing I want. Today definitely showed me a lot of why. 
I can't be away from APO for three months. Just thinking about it brings a tear to my eye. The seniors that are leaving including my big, Marty, Jaclyn, and Jess make me wish college was forever. 
At refugee tutoring today, I worked with a junior in high school who moved to the US two years ago from Rwanda. She was not only a talented, but kind and motivated. She has high expectations for herself and is asking for help for all the right things. She wanted to get a job this summer and apply for colleges- her dream is to go to Wright State with her best friend who will be going there this fall! As I left today, I thought to myself I can't leave. I need to stay and help her and watch her in her incredible journey. It pains me to think of a summer without all the people we help at APO. I constantly talk about my puppies from Pawsitive that I can't live without, Ruth from Carlyle House, and all the bright kids at refugee tutoring. I constantly force myself to go to service. Most days I will admit I don't want to go, but I always end up coming back learning something about myself and wanting to improve this world.
So I guess you could say I caught a spark today. From Marty who wasn't even attending service driving Nora and I to helping tutor, it was perfect. 
So, I don't want summer to come because that means time away from my brothers of APO. Whenever I miss my biological brothers, my APO brothers are there to remind me I am always home. Whenever I need a laugh, Marty or Jaclyn tell me a stupid joke. Whenever I need to rant MC will be there with me. Whenever I need inspiration to keep going, APO is there. 

Sorry, I got those feels. Thank you to all my brothers. For those of you who will be g wording soon please please please don't forget about us. Thanks for anyone who read this rambling mess that is my brain right now. :)
