Okay...enough already, right?
Here we go....
Today's Topic: Home
Tuesday, I am going home. Well, one of my homes, anyway.
The place of my birth.
The home of my first breath.
To the place where mangoes and avocados are ripe on the trees and where laughter and hand-holding, even among men, is just the way friends greet on the streets.
I am heading back to the place and to the people whose lives were ravaged a year and a half ago....
And yet they stand.
The earth quaked. Floods swept the land. Chlorea continues to plague the nation.
And yet, the people remain...strong.
Affected - yes.
Heart-broken - yes.
Scared - of course.
RESILIENT - you better believe it.
It might seem funny to some to see this freckle-faced, green-eyed, Irish-blooded girl call this place home.
But every time I go......
...I SEE....I HEAR....I UNDERSTAND....His heartbeat...just a little more.
How He loves us....oh HOW he loves us!
Oh yeah....I'm going home!
