Dear fellow followers,
It started with a phone call from my dad, telling me that they had arrived at the hotel. Immediately after I hung up, I grabbed my backpack (filled with Christmas presents for them), said “see you later” to my friends, and headed off the ship to Hotel Pelinor. Now, it takes a good 30 minutes to walk from the Mercy Ship to the end of the dock, then 10 more minutes to get to the hotel…and my heart was beating fast the entire time because I was so excited to see the family. And as you can tell from the picture, they were very excited to see me too. Mom and Dad both had tears in their eyes & I can’t even tell you how many hugs and kisses I got from everyone.
