It is always a little difficult for me not to get into the Winter Woes during this time of year. It has been especially hard for me this year because of several things. First I gave up my full-time missions job in August due to several reasons and I do miss the people. I also had a very bad case of Bronchitis/Pneumonia which began before Thanksgiving and lasted well into Christmas. I found it increasingly difficult to work midnight shift at my Nursing job because I just wasn't getting any sleep. Let's face it I am a missionary at heart and will always be!! When I get the opportunity to be out and about with some of the families from the apartments it is encouraging! This past week I had the chance to go for an afternoon of coffee with some of the Mom's and of course I really enjoyed my hugs and kisses from the sweet children. I even took along a home made pie and coffee from Honduras! I also was ask to attend a Birthday Party for one of the children. Of course Mark and I were the only Gringos! Mark agreed to go with me since it was in the evening but he didn't really quite understand why they planned a birthday party on Super Bowl Sunday in the evening. As it turned out he got to watch the whole 1st half on a TV much larger than ours. Of course the other men were all outside engaging in talk and other things. I always enjoy being among the people no matter what and I was thankful for God's sweet reminders that He is not finished with me yet!
