Happy Monday Sweet Friends,
Know I am late today, but have been a busy girl, but
decided to take a few minutes to say Hello, and say I
hope you had a nice relaxing weekend too!
We did, it was very quiet, relaxing and lazy, and we
only went out to church, and it was one of our Missions
weekends, and it was really so good. Sunday evening,
they had 2 groups, that lasted for about 20 minutes or
so, the first one they had you sit down as if you were
loaded on the bus getting ready to take off for a missions
trip to Haiti, and they told you everything they would
tell you just like as if you were going. The fellow that
did the talking has been down to Haiti about 4 or 5
times this year so he knows the ropes!
Amazing what people have to go thru just to get down
there with luggage and struggles at the airport with
unscrupulous people, and the transporation in the
country. let alone the hard work they do.....
remember it is a 3rd world country, and there are
only 3rd world tools, and they can't really take any
power tools cause there is no where to plug them in.
It was a quite a snapshot of what goes on....
Then the 2nd station was a nurse and her daughter
who I think is in school becoming a nurse, and
the Mom had been there three times. The room
was set up to look like Haiti with chickens and
all and they had a slide presentation, showing
what they did medically and stuff. We found
out that some people only eat every 3-4 days.
I don't know how they survive. It is just so
humbling when you realize how blessed we
really are in this country.
It is also, a country steeped in Voodooism
and satanic stuff, and it is not a safe place.
Very eye opening!
I finally have gotten my spring/summer things
packed away, but before I did I transformed
my living room into what I will call my white
room. I have always loved the white
decorating, so decided just to do one room
like that, I will probably regret it when it is
time to decorate for Christmas, but oh well,
it is a done deal now.
Well, I am leaving Summer behind.................
and embracing Fall..............................
Love these darling lil guys and gals,
we have about 4 or 5 that live in the tree out front
and they are so fun to watch them run around
and chase each other as they play.
Have tried numerous times to capture it with
the camera but they are just too too fast!! lol
Well, gotta run, Dee and Jerry are coming for dinner
and she is gonna do my hair, that time again!!
Have a Wonderful Evening with your Sweeties!
and White Room Blessings,
