We got home on Friday and just crashed.  Dave is heading back out again tomorrow for another week of camp this time it’s somewhere in the Nashville, TN area.  I know he enjoyed having a few nights in his own bed.

Just been thinking today about Haiti.  It’s never far from my mind and I never get through a day without thinking about it.  I’m thankful for that.  My life here is so different from the lives of the people in Haiti.  I only hope I’m living… really living in all the blessings that I have.  I try but I always wonder.  Here is when my mind will randomly wander off during the day and I start thinking about Haiti.

  • When I am making a meal
  • When I throw away leftover food
  • When my kids run and play in our yard
  • when I clean my hardwood floors with cleaner
  • when I vacuum my carpet
  • when I look at all the stuff in our house
  • when I give the girls a hot bath every night
  • when i get in my air conditioned leather seated van
  • when I drive on the interstate
  • when I see a child of darker colored skin
  • when I fold my wash and see my blue Haiti shirt
  • when I see one ant in my house and realize I don’t care to go and kill it
  • When I think about having another child
  • When I look at our closet full of shoes
  • When I fluff the pillows on our couch
  • When I get a letter in the mail from Angela
  • When I sit in church
  • When I get on the Internet
  • When I read peoples blogs
  • When I get up in the middle of the night and turn the air down because I’m hot

Once again, Haiti, never far from my mind and I’m thankful for that.
