Day Eight

How quickly our week went, but how much we’ve done, seen and most of all…felt!

Polly, David and I came back to the USA tonight, Dani and Paul traveled on to Guatemala.

This morning was especially difficult. Not only did we have to say good-bye to Sor Theresa and Sor Dinora (they are both being re-assigned, we don’t know where yet) but we had to leave all our wonderful friends in Honduras. We had to leave the life of simplicity and return to life more complicated.
During our trip we kept noticing little things like, “Wouldn’t it be much easier for them if they had a washing machine? Or a dishwasher?” and “How can they drive like this without any real direction or signs?”. The answer to these and many other questions is no. They live a simple life, but they like it that way. They have fewer complications and frustrations. They take things slow and don’t sweat the small stuff. They do not suffer from false pride but are humble and very thankful people. We have a lot to learn from them. I think each of us on this trip felt very unworthy of their reception of us, giving what they could to show us their love. I am hoping I can keep this feeling for a long time, and I am very happy with the new friends I’ve made and friendships I’ve re-kindled. It was an amazing trip with some amazing people and I thank God for letting me share in their lives.

  1. You’ve done such a beautiful job with this blog, Lynn. This last entry really says it all. As a person who spends WAY too much time “sweating the small stuff”, I really appreciate your perspective. Safe travels and God Bless!

  2. What a wonderful job you did capturing your trip, on all levels. I look forward to hearing more about it and hope to gain some of your “simpler” insight. God’s blessings to you and every heart you touched. Hugs….
