I'm back!

I just returned from a trip to Bosnia Hersecgovina where I visited the small village of Medjugorje. I plan to blog a bit about my trip later, after I have sorted through my photos. This trip was a spiritual pilgrimage for me. It was my second trip to the area. I spent a lot of money. The euro was up and the dollar was down. It was so cold while we were there. The house we stayed at was heated from 6 AM to 10 AM and from 7 PM to 11 PM. If you didn't shower at the right time, your shower was cold. The beds were small and the blankets weren't warm enough. The food was not very good. Everything swam in oil while being cooked and dripped the oil on your plate when you ate. There were very few creature comforts. but it was the most wonderful trip I have ever taken!
I came home sick to a broken furnace and broken TV. My cell phone had to be replaced. Returning home was expensive, but the trip was worth every penny I spent. When my photos are ready, I'll post them along with a little explanation of my trip. My trip was not about beads, but it continues affect my life.

I am so looking forward to seeing some pictures and hearing more about your trip. Sometimes giving up comforts we are used to helps us to appreciate how blessed our lives are.
