I’m off to the bus terminal to catch a bus to Panama City. Joel returns this evening after a successful week in Maine getting his mother settled in her new place. Between my travels and his, we’ve been apart for a while. Thank goodness for Skype phone calls and video chats! But, it’s not the same as actually being together. And, now our life at home will be more peaceful. I’m looking forward to that.
I just received word today that a friend has died suddenly in a car crash, single car accident, possible heart attack at the wheel. What a shock. It reminds all of us that we never know if we are going to have another day, another moment. This makes me very thankful for the time I do have with my husband, my family, the people important to me in my life, and for this opportunity to experience this new life in Panama.
Now, I am off to appreciate another moment with someone most important in my life! And, if our luck holds we will both be back soon to our home with our Panamanian friends and neighbors.
