I just want to tell you about my latest blessing...
Victor and Valerie got together and decided that their parents are busy people, and since they needed to come see their aunt because she has been sick, they would take a bus to SPS and come with Jeidin, who works with the family. They sold the idea to Jeidin and convinced her. Later on they went and informed their parents of their decision... and permissions were granted.
They traveled to San Pedro Sula yesterday. They took Hedman Alas at 5:30 and got to the Umaña house at 11:30 pm. They came in exhausted but happy! By then, I was already exhausted myself.
We have the air conditioning running in the living room. When they get here they sit on the couch with me, one at each side, and they just hug me. After a while, Victor says: "Tía, why do you have bruises on your arms?" I say: Well, it's because of my condition...my skin has gotten thinner, and since they have been drawing blood I get these bruises..." We remaing quiet for a little while and then I say... "Also because I am sick I look the way I do. My puffy eyes and swollen face and neck, my hair is thinner too..." They turn to me surprised and look at me as if seeing me for the first time... and Victor says: "Oh, I had not seen that...." and Valerie says: "Really tía, I didn't notice..." They are quiet for a few more seconds and then Valerie says: "We love you , you know?..."
Unconditional love! Very hard not to cry!
So my love tanks are already getting be filled this weekend...
Y yo no podría sentirme más amada y bendecida!!
Gracias Lisa y Alfredo por permitirles viajar!!
