There is so much to tell and so much to process that it is hard for me to even know where to begin in the sharing of this trip. I haven't even gotten half way through all the stories and pictures with Mark and the kids yet! But I have to begin somewhere, so here are a few generic thoughts to get us started:
- As heart-wrenching as it was to say goodbye to my family for 12 days, it was that joyous and more to be reunited with them upon returning to Texas. I could not get off of that plane fast enough! (Thank you, God, that my seat was at the front of the plane and not the back!)
- As heart-wrenching as it was to say goodbye to my family for 12 days, God was so merciful and sufficient in making the time apart more than just bearable. It truly was okay--for all of us. A miracle in itself.
- I never realized how much I would miss a hot bath, paved roads, a drink from Sonic with ICE, Mexican food, and falling into bed without having to arrange a mosquito net around me!
- I never knew how much of a blessing an upgrade to Business Class or First Class could really be! For this 6' 1" gal with long legs, it's a huge blessing I was able to enjoy TWICE!! Grace indeed.
I will share a few random pictures with you, though!
