Safe & Sound with Stories

The early morning alarms buzzed through out the hotel and tired bodies climbed out of bed. Not to start another shift but to continue the journey homeward. No team shirts necessary today as we were on home soil and the group was actually split up. There was a general air of restrained excitement as we boarded two more times to reach our final destination. We were coming home safe and sound but with many stories to tell but more importantly with a fresh view of our world.

Now we will gather amongst our family and friends to reconnect with those that supported us in our venture. We will go forth and remember that we are blessed in both our personal and professional lives. We won’t take drinking water, sterile wrappers or the freedom to walk the streets for granted again as we saw what true hardship looks like this week. Despite the flaws in our health care system we are able to provide quality care for all patients and we know that is not the case in Haiti nor in many places around the world.

We will blaze new trails with fresh eyes as our hearts, minds and souls were changed this past week. We will remember the good that comes from Broken Earth teams that help others and we will continue to champion the cause of caring for others there and here. We will reach out and help those around us with open eyes.

PS Stay tuned in for the next couple of days as I write up the Project Stitch story, continue on about the Operating Room, touch on team work and write up my lessons learned in Haiti list. Once again, thanks for stopping in, reading and commenting.

    Thank you for taking the time to write and share your thoughts. I’ve enjoyed following along. I let my aunt and cousin know about your blog and she (my aunt) was excited to see one of the dresses on any early picture.
