OK, the holidays came and went! Some days were better than others but we all survived!
My flight home was delayed 3.5 hours, when I left Guatemala. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight in Houston. The airline was nice enough to put me in a hotel for the night but all of my luggage was sent on. Therefore, I have a new Houston shirt to wear :)
My parents had to make two trips to Charlotte but I know they say that it is OK :)
This is my family on Christmas Eve. From left to right is Mike, my brother. He is a fireman and works for the NC Fire Service. Angie is his wife and she works in real estate. Paige, is their daughter and has a new baby of 11 months. Then there is my mom, Ginny who is holding Mackenzie........and then my dad, Jack. I am very thankful for my family and it was good to share time with them.
South Fork continues to look for a minister so please remember them in your prayers.
The rest of the time was spent relaxing. I spent three days in Winston with Sally and we visited her mom. Mom and I did a little shopping but not a lot.
I spent one Sunday in Morganton, worshiping with the Morganton Church of Christ. It was good to see them and share the year of activities.
My flight returned to Guatemala on January 1st. Since it was a 0600 flight, we spent the night in Charlotte................and it was a good thing. That last night, my parents were attacked with the flu.......and I mean, ATTACKED! Both were totally down. We did not sleep the whole night and I had to take a shuttle to the airport.
When I arrived in Antigua, I spent the two days in my room. I am so thankful that I was not as sick as they were but it was difficult getting back to Guatemala.
So many things occurred over the three weeks but it is time to get back to work.
Tomorrow, Sara and I will be in Lemoa in the clinic It will be good to see everyone again. I am so lucky that I have two worlds in my life and they provide me with much happiness.
