Haiti Blog Post- 17 Home is where the heart is...
Home is where the heart is….
If this is true than my heart belongs to lots of places. I am currently in the Miami airport waiting on my flight to Nashville to see my parents for a few days, spend some time with my Diocese of Alabama friends, and head back to my seminary friends in Austin. I parted ways, tearfully, with Kellaura and she is on her way to Austin.
Part of me is so excited to be going home. I told my Mom on the phone beware I look horrible! I have lost some weight, my eyes are sunken in to the back of my head, and most all I don’t smell that great! She was just happy to hear my voice and I was overjoyed to hear hers.
Another part of me felt like my heart was going to break in to a million pieces this morning when I had to tell Pere Val and Carmel good-bye. Then once again when I told Kellaura good-bye (although she is stuck with me for awhile since we do see each other in class everyday). She has been a true companion on this journey, she has listened and cared for me with such grace, and she even says I am good travel partner. I am grateful for her and I have LOVED being on this journey with her.
My heart is in Haiti, my heart is in Tennessee, my heart is in Alabama, and my heart is in Austin. I just can’t decide where my heart belongs. I will continue to be faithful. God will show me the way….
PS- Look for much more from us in the coming months on our journey to Haiti and thanks for coming along with us on the ride!
