Rough Day

I let too many influence my day today and ended up not only messing up a healing blister, but being very annoyed at someone and mostly with myself for not drawing a line in the mud and saying MY CAMINO! But one also learns on the Camino that you might be needed more FOR someone than the reverse. Which turned out to be the case today. So I was the lesson for someone today and the one I received is...haven't a clue.

Neat isn't supposed to be outside in a lightening and thunder storm right? What happens when you have no choice? You're literally in the middle of knowhere? Trust God and enjoy the show! I took this picture just before the rain started falling. The light is the hill we were walking beside the dark is the sky ready to give us its show.

I'm in a little hotel in Burgos. For two days. I swore I wasn't going to do this. (Hotel.) But here I am. Will plan tomorrow flight home, bus to Tricastelera or feet to Leon.

This afternoon it was "outta here" (again). Tonight over tapas with Jurgen, I saw Marlena walk by. I went out and Tanya was with her (met both in separate cities). I'm inspired again. Marlena in the middle, Tanya on the right.

Love/hate hotel. Have power, shower, etc. Have windows open for street noise. 149 short of sleeping companions. All the toilet paper I want. Weird not wearing tomorrow's clothes to bed. I kid you not - it took THREE baths to get the water to run clear and not brown. Not wearing my contacts or putting the case in my shoes at night is new too. Guesses that I'll wake up at 5:30 with nowhere to go?

Still playing the Jeopardy theme song!

The good thing about being an adult -- you get to make the decision that's best for you. And the great thing about real friends, they support your decision.

Heal heels!
Love you,

Mr Droopyface posits:

You weren't clueless, Teri-- Just unaware of the Scripture included in Tuesday's Offices of the Hours (prayed by freakazoid Catholics, daily, required of clergy and those with Holy Orders)

1 John 3:17 - 18
If a man who was rich enough in this world’s goods saw that one of his brothers was in need, but closed his heart to him, how could the love of God be living in him? My children, our love is not to be just words or mere talk, but something real and active;

I'd say you're DEFINITELY something real and active :) and it's uninamous that you have the Love of God living in you!
