This is me…

 


I do eat whatever…chocolate croissant for breakfast? Yep? Cheese with honey for dessert? Yep? Red wine? Yep? Lemon beer? I am in…

They are such offerings of love and kindness. This one was the most beautiful…in a barn, it was art. It was the most beautiful thing around in the middle of great poverty and cows and manure and alleys…one lady came along and gave us crepes and another did some kind of fried sugar dough thing. The problem with trying my Spanish is that they answer me in Spanish. And it is so animated in my face and I have no idea what they are saying. It is endearing though. I just smile a lot. I helped this elderly lady with a cane up a bunch of stairs and she had A LOT to say to me…

 

the feet are greatly improved. I know how to help them now and what to pay attention to. It was a 10 min ordeal preparing them to walk with heel cushions, tape, a toe sleeve, Vaseline…it worked. I am nearly pain free and may actually finish this thing with my chacos sandals.

Speaking of finishing this thing. I am. That was not always a known thing. It is now. There were many moments of doubt before and during this. Then there were the casualties along the way of the people who had to stop. It is a guessing game…shit happens. There were only a few days where I had had it…I couldn’t talk about walking. I didn’t want to consider what we had to cover the next day or even have the courage to look. There were a handful of those days. And one when I really couldn’t do it. One that I opted not to do it for the pleasure of Leon Spain…

i feel sadness seeing the signs that there are only 80k left. It is so odd…it has been a long road and I am both relieved and sad…hmmmm. Grateful to be at this place. So grateful…

everyday I talk to God. Everyday I am thankful.

Love to y’all…
