Wake Up Call at 2:15 a.m.??!!
Today is a crazy day.
I have a 5:40 a.m. flight tomorrow to Jamaica for mission trip. Who the HECK books a flight at 5:45 a.m.???!!! By the way - I live a good 45 minutes away from our airport. So...considering this is an international flight - which means I must check in 2 hours prior - that means leaving the house at 2:45 a.m. I need a minimum of 30 minutes to get ready before leaving - so a wake-up call at 2:15 a.m. is needed. Holy heck!!!!
It will be 8 days in Jamaica, working alongside doctors and nurses at a medical clinic in Falmouth, Jamaica. Do I have a medical background? Well, I worked at a hospital here in town for 20 years - but in the offices, not in the clinical side. I am not sure what my role will be on this trip, but I have enough experience with mission trips, that I go with a servant attitude and I have flexibility, flexibility, flexibility tattoo'd on my head. (Joking, of course)
I won't have my laptop on this trip. So, I will be (gasp) writing things down manually in a journal, and will then come home and "catch up" with my blogging. I hope to have some cool stories and awesome photos.
In the meantime, today will be spent with packing, laundry, and last-minute shopping... and then, God willing, going to bed super early to catch some shut-eye before 2:15 a.m. arrives!
Be sure to do YOUR part today to change the world - one action at a time, one day at a time.
