Now on to so much happier things….. We took our vacation last month and it was filled with so many twist and turns but they all turned out to be such a blessing.
We were going on a cruise to the Bahamas. We drove to Florida on a Sunday. It was a very nice drive. We checked into the hotel in Jacksonville and stayed the night. I was not happy with the Hyatt Regency. The lobby gave the impression that it was a top-notch hotel but the room was just like any Comfort Inn. But it was just for the night and we had a really good time.
Now here is where the blessing came in. We boarded the ship ready to take off when my husband gets a call from his Sargent telling him he can not travel outside the US. Well, we quickly got off the ship and tried to figure out what to do. It came to me that I’ve wanted to visit/meet my new facebook friend in Baltimore. This would be a 17 hour drive but my husband said “let’s do it” so off we went.
My husband wanted to do some music with his friends as well, so we drove to New Jersey to meet up with some of them and then on to Philadelphia. We had such a great time.
We drove back to DC to visit some family and friends and attend Shul. Which was amazing by the way. There is nothing on earth like living in a community. I felt as if I was home and I really did not do very much. Coming back to our Post was very sad and dealing with all the hate we find here is even worst. Living around people who only pretend to do the will of G-d is very hard. I’ve often wondered how Christians can say things like “I’m going to take of my religion” as if G-d is something you can set on the table and pick up when you are ready to be “good”. Very confusing, to say the least.
There are so many pictures I would love to share with you. For now, this will have to do.
