I'm a little tired of funerals, but many of the volunteers go day after day for months or years. It's nice to know that someone is mourning these people if the family doesn't come. In the last 8 days, I think over 25 bodies have been blessed by a mixed group of volunteers, Haitians, and ordained nuns & priests who kneel on the tile floor in a circle and extend our hands over the bodies.
I'm a little tired of funerals. I'm not tired of Haiti, though. This trip has been wonderful in many ways and too short. We are planning some sort of celebration this evening & I leave tomorrow. Hoping for no delays and excited for Christmas (especially to bring some Haitian goodies to my family). Excited for happy family gatherings and no more funerals. But I'll be thinking of Haiti and those who die here every day, as always.
