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!
