Changes and Obstacles
I have been in Haiti for a few months now and have hit a few road blocks. Needless to say family differences have come into the picture and I will be moving out of the home I am staying. I knew coming down to Haiti that it would not be easy and that I needed to expect the unexpected. I wish I was more prepared for the situation that lies in front of me. I stayed at a guest house for a week and a half until I was able to book a flight home. I suppose it came at an acceptable time. Haiti is going to start their election process and a few short weeks later will announce who is the next president, or who will be in the run-off election. This has been a difficult and trying year for Haiti and the next president has a heavy burden on their shoulders.
I booked my ticket and will return home November 15th, just in time for the holidays. It is not easy to say good bye to friends who have become family. Good bye is never easy. I don’t know when I will be back and I don’t know what lies ahead of me. I am trying to put my faith in God. I know there is a bigger picture, this is all making me stronger, it is happening for a reason; you name it I tried to tell myself. Good bye is still good bye. My heart is hurting as I get ready to leave. I know I am supposed to be in Haiti and having to leave is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I am marking it as a lesson learned and an experience and path that is far from over. It is time now to practice patience, something I do not do well.
