The day started with breakfast at the hotel. Tom and I sat next to this elderly couple. His cell phone rang and he struggled trying to answer it. He told the person on the phone that he was glad he got him on the phone because he didn’t know how to check his messages. His wife told us how they just got the cell phones and she’s happy she knows how to place a call. Tom and I smiled. They were so sweet and loving to each other.
We got to about 10 miles of
All is well and tomorrow we travel the 10 miles to our apartment and unload.
This made me think how often right before the payoff of something you have been waiting for, discouragement comes. Something happens that makes you want to give up. It reminded me of labor. I was so exhausted from all the pushing that at one point I said to Tom, “I’m done. I don’t want to do this anymore. I want to go home.” It was a good thing that I didn’t give up because soon we had this beautiful baby girl. In the end something beautiful comes to pass.
I look forward to our new adventure
