Now, since I was the only one that didn't put sunscreen on myself the first day, and got totally sunburnt, I was in need of some serious aloe vera and moisturizer something-something.
And although I didn't get my hands on any vinegar to help with the sunburn- I did find this stuff which was awesome:
I haven't been sunburned for years....but I guess being in the sun all day is no test for your "tan-ness"...ha ha ha ha And I was amazed at how quickly my skin recovered after I slathered this on me...I mean, I coated my skin in this a lot! ha ha ha
This trip was filled with so much beauty, with sunsets like this, and the moonlight at night seemed to glow so much differently there. My heart was so very sad at times...I heard a James Taylor song that reminded me of my dad and tears just started running down my face. As I'd see things my dad would love, my heart would be frozen in pain and sadness that I won't ever hear his voice here on Earth again and even though people were happy all around me, playing in the water...no one could tell that it wasn't just water on my face...that tears were in my eyes.
I sat at dinner, watching the sunset...and tears just ran down my face. I didn't want anyone to know I was sad, so I would try to smile real fast...but as I saw everything so beautiful that my eyes just felt like they couldn't take it in fast enough....
I wondered how much more beautiful heaven will be. And how all of this probably isn't close to as amazing as everything my dad is seeing there.
I can't really type about it too much more, because my keyboard will be covered in tears...
wishing I was still eating a shave ice instead of doing laundry at home now (ha ha ha), huge hugs and a handful of hope, your kandee
