Since I've been in Honduras, I've been realizing some things I will never again take for granted.
Here's my list:
1. AIR CONDITIONING
What more can I say? I truly cannot live without it, and I will always be grateful for it from now on.
I can't tell you how much I miss my morning coffee. They do have coffee here, but it's just way too hot for me to drink it.
3. Diet Pepsi
Oh, how I miss you! My sweet new friend, A., brought me a diet pepsi and a diet coke, because she couldn't remember which one was my favorite. (Diet pepsi)
I think my huge hug scared her a little.
There is nowhere to run here, and it is WAY too hot to run outside even if there was. I miss going for a run, I miss spin class, I miss being able to do any kind of exercise. I will never take that ability for granted again!
5. Regular toilets
No toilet paper in the toilet, it has to go in the trashcan (gross). The schools basically have port a pottys.
Weird, right? In Honduras, everyone just pulls their hair back, including me. I haven't fixed my hair in 2.5 weeks and I miss doing that!
7. My dishwasher
No dishwasher here. Washing dishes for 9+ people is a lot!
My eyes have really been opened to how blessed I am. I also now realize how strong missionary's are. They give up all of these things I take for granted every day, to live this life. To rescue children, teach them about God and show them love they otherwise would never know. They are truly selfless. My prayer is to become like that.
Today I am traveling home. It will be a long travel day (5 hour layover in Atlanta), but I'm going home!
