Today was a wave of many emotions, laughter and tears……
We started the day off with Diana searching for her contacts only to discover they were in her eyes already, Jenn searching for her lens cap that was on her lens and my mishaps are just too numerous to account!! My first misstep was trying to find the business center. I asked the lady at the front desk where to go and she held up her hand with her index finger touching her thumb and other fingers splayed and said “shroow floor” and indicated the direction of the elevators. I blankly looked at her and said “zero?”, totally not thinking there is a zero floor. She kept repeating “shroow” and I kept telling her “I’m so sorry I don’t understand”. Finally she wiggled those splayed fingers and said “shroow” and I said “three”…..ahhhhhh laughter all around!!! So funny, I’m sure she thought I was a total lunatic!! The means of getting copies of Janie’s referral file from my email was the debacle you would expect from the technically challenged girl that I am. Thankfully the concierge had pity upon me and got me set by the end of the hour and he apologized to me. Really!!!! He is my hero, love him!!
Next up was a Buddhist temple before catching our flight to Changsha. Being my third time in China one would think I have been there done that but no, it was a first. Very interesting but sad all the same.Many laughs were had as well.
We immediately loaded up into our chariot ……the driver was not amused with us and our luggage,
see his overwhelmed look over there??? haha
We then headed to locate the finding places of our Changsha girls. I cannot bring myself to share the emotional events of the afternoon on my blog since it is so personal for Janie and myself. I can say I will be forever changed by what I saw and I feel fiercely protective of my sweet baby. I am so very thankful to have this piece of Janie’s life in my heart forever……..
