Here’s a shout out to let you know that I am on Guatemalan soil and nestled in.  I cut it a little close this time ….. I’ll share a few positive and negative firsts to pass on….

 I had a hiccup last night when I realized where I normally keep my passport there was no passport.  And my desk where I keep my passport was sold in my yard sale.  So after me mentally being at my breaking point and tearing apart my house, I “accidently” found it.  I actually hadn’t taken it out of my carry on bag from my June trip to Guatemala.  Whoops!  I guess I was preoccupied when I got home.  Traveling point – know where your passport is at all times.

I had another first today as well…. when I travel I always have three bags and a backpack – two bags on wheels and dragging a large bag I call my body bag.  As I made my way in the door a gentleman asked if he could assist me to the check in counter.  In the twenty+ times I have struggled through the airport, this was the first someone assisted me so joyfully.  I was glad for the encouragement this morning.

My last first will be for those who know me well…. as I was flying today the girl beside me must have dreamt in her sleep and hit me.  For a split second I did almost hit her back, but after so many hugs this week, I had control of my reflexes and kept my hands from hitting back.  What a pleasant first 🙂 

Clinic in Chiminisijuan tomorrow….. Blessings to you as you read this!  Thanks for your prayers…. they got me here, now to just sustain me!
