Home

Home now... why is it always so good to be home? No matter how excited you are about a trip it is always good to be home.

I have to admit, by yesterday, the crowds and masses were wearing on me some, so we just had a day of rest in the hotel and then home today.

Ironically though, it is the crowds and masses I enjoy the most about NYC. The diversity of this city is awesome! Take any handful of people you may rest your eyes upon and you will find an African American, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Italian, Mexican, Caucasian, and many other cultures too numerous to count. These huge conglomerates of cultures all seem to live and work side by side, for the most part in harmony.

Humanity has a lot to offer each other given a chance.

I did my best to capture a few pictures of the people of New York City. It's a little difficult to do without seeming to be rude but I managed to get a few.

Home now... my thirst for far away places abated...temporarily at least.

















Some of their churches are as multicultural as their sidewalks are.

Simply amazing.

I think this is your best blog yet! I have fallen behind on blogging, housework, facebook...etc.. I have become hooked on tennis. Just getting home at 10:30!! I am enjoying it and would love for you to come watch me play. You have no idea how far back that song takes me. I cried the first two weeks I was married because I missed Ben so badly. I played this song over and over! Ha Ha... I was just a kid myself. Love ya, Jenn

Hey Robbin...no it's right back to work tonight for a streak of (5) 12 hour shifts...don't think I will plan things this way again!

Hope you will be feeling better after the blood transfusion!

Blessings, peace, all good
