Its Sunday night, and tomorrow, we head home.
We didn't do anything today. I mean nothing. My sunburn is so bad, I'm having a hard time walking and just standing up. The burn is only from about my belly button down to my knees, but its pretty painful. I'm glad it happened later in the week, and I am also thankful that its not on my back or arms. But still, Its not fun. I have either been naked, or in underwear all day. I have taken 2 warm baths, and have been applying aloe spray pretty much nonstop. That's what I get for being at the naughty beach for too long.
It rained again this morning, and apparently all day it has been either overcast or raining. Eric and Tiff stopped by letting us know that there was almost no one outside. Maybe everyone else got their naughty bits burned as well.
We ordered our final room service this evening. I had the marlin quesadilla and a club sandwich. Jodi got the spaghetti and the veggie pizza, even tho she really didn't touch the pizza. I helped out with that.
This has really been an extraordinary week for us. We have had an amazing time, which was only complimented by having Eric and Tiff here with us. We have had some great food, good laughs, and awesome memories made that will last a lifetime. Big trip.
I am still amazed, and somewhat shocked, to have a girl like Jodi in my life. I have spent many years feeling out of place, not sure of who I was, where I was going, or even if I wanted to keep going. I felt like I have been sitting at an intersection with many possible paths, but for fear of failing, or being rejected, I intentionally chose the roads that I knew led me nowhere. I felt like a man who belonged nowhere, and wasn't sure if I was ever going to.
Jodi and the kids have come into my life and helped me to see that I never really lost my hope, I just lost my ability to see my hope. They make me feel like I have a place, and that I belong. Their love towards me has shown me how incomplete my life has been, and at the same time, it has showed me how complete my life now is.
Farewell from Jamaica. We get home after midnight Monday. Thanks to all who have read this blog over the week. We will continue to blog about our lives as we move forward with our lives together.
