Morning Meanderings…. Recovery (ing)
As you probably can imagine from yesterdays post that I am beyond heartbroken over the loss of our pet (friend, companion) Elmo. I get that this is going to be a slow process, I knew someday I would be writing the post that I did, but I did not anticipate this level of pain.
Yesterday was a busy day which was probably a good thing. I am going to Honduras on November 5 – November 11 and two of the guys on the team are from the Ukraine. Dima is 28 and a Pastor in the Ukraine and he is here for the first time in the United States staying with our Pastor through Thanksgiving who met him many years ago when he was in Ukraine on a mission trip. Dima speaks little english. Boris is 25 and Dima’s interpreter. Yesterday I took both of them in to get their shots for the Honduras trip. It was kind of fun (and a great distraction from life) to go and assist them with the paperwork. They say our hospital is nothing like the hospitals in Ukraine.
They are both extremely nice and I am excited to see them on this Honduras trip with us.
Today I work (also good) and tonight I have dinner with friends for a long overdue baby shower get together. (also good).
I have reviews to post and books to read and while life is difficult right now to say the least, I know that I need to move ahead. Thank you all who sent kind words… while its hard for me to talk about, I really do appreciate every comment and it means the world to me to have all your kind support.
