There is a saying, "Everything in Thailand has its own time. On Thursday night at 11pm Thai time, we realized our airplane had left with out us. We (Juergen and I both) had convinced our selves we were leaving on Friday, and returning on Saturday! Our airline tickets were of a different opinion! Once we realized we had made this incredible mistake, we got on the phone to
to see what we could do. The good news was the airline had plenty of seats left for the Friday night flight. The painful news was it cost us an extra 720Euros to change the tickets. Ouch! Anyway, we made it home. It was clear to both of us we needed a vacation!
We took our vacation very serious, and forgot the time! Jessica did pretty well on the flight. She slept most of the way. Juergen and I are both wiped out. We took turns holding Jessica so that she would stay calm. I'll write tomorrow about the expensive but wonderful last day we spent in Thailand! It was a very special day! The kids return to school next week. Juergen will return to work. My thoughts will return to Sarah...and the Lord willing our trip to China in the next few months! Thank you for your prayers!
