This morning I started off my day with the Lord. It was great but I feel like I’m struggling to stay awake sometimes. I guess I’m still not used to getting up this early. It will take at least a couple of weeks. I read on the internet that it takes at least 21 to make a habit or anywhere from 30 – 40 days (it depends on the person) however the interesting thing is it takes 90 days to break a habit. Wow, so I need to give myself grace and just allow God to keep pushing me out of bed in the mornings no matter how tired I feel.
I went to Sabolciu gypsy village with Mircea and Norbi today. We had a great time with the children. It is nice to have a more regular program now with the children and to be working all together. Towards the end of our time with the children before we left I had quite an interesting experience at the village. A priest and his assistant came to the village to bless all the families. They went to each house to bless the children with water and I even got blessed too. The kids were so cute how they ran into their houses and they kept yelling “preot este vine!” (priest is coming). Oh, what an interesting life I have here in Romania!!
In the evening I just stayed home. I was going to have my Romanian lesson today but then I decided to cancel because I needed to work on my blog so I can start working on my newsletter. I also watched a bit of TV and chatted on messenger.
