A smile on my dial again

Well what a good day today is. As you know I have not been well for a couple of weeks and when that happens a strange phenomenon occurs ( not just with me but with lots of other needgreaters I have spoken to) - you get extremely homesick! I don't know whether it is because you want to be surrounded by your loved ones or what but you just get to be wondering why on earth you are doing this to yourself. So I get better from my flu on Wednesday but poor Mark had a terrible night with tooth pain so off we had to go to the dentist. He ended up having to be sent to an oral surgeon for a root canal - ouch! Even more ouch is he got through the whole thing without anesetic! (We now know you have to actually ask for the stuff). Thursday came around and to make my week even better - I woke up with a migraine. So by now I am really wanting to get on the next plane out of here!
Finally though today I seem to be over everything and back on deck. It only takes one morning out in the field to be thankful again that we have this opportunity. We were due up in the mountains for Marks study at 7.30 am and usually it is quite cool that time of the morning but today the sun was shining (and has been all day) so as I have said before - you can't beat Cuenca on a good day, it really is beautiful. Life is good again!

Admit it Beth....it wasn't the sickness that made you homesick..it was the fact that WE were out of town!! haha
