-Footprints in the Sand-

-Footprints in the Sand-

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets offootprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really troubled him and he questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Food should be my middle name....No, but really.

As I have been in Mexico I have had an appetite the size of a hippopotamus, and a pig combined.  You could probably throw in a rhino, and that would probably be more accurate.  As I have done research, I have found some reasons why my body has taken this change.  They are:

1-  I'm stressed.
2-  I'm walking more than ever in my life, and I need to keep up my calories.
3-  I'm stressed.
4-  The food I eat here is absolutely amazing, so I feel the need to stuff myself every chance I get before I leave.
5-  I'm stressed.
6-  I just love food!

Since I do know my body more than anybody else; well except for one person, (don't worry it's God!) I have come to the conclusion that I am, yes, stressed; but I feel like it's more than that.  I am legitimately HUNGRY ALL the time!  I feel like if I don't eat, I won't have the energy to make it through the day.  Check it:

For breakfast I ate a:
-Cinnamon roll &
-Oatmeal Atole

After teaching in the morning I ate a:
-Apple &
-Drank a Yakuit

After Spanish Class #1 I ate:
-An amazing piece of cake...I would actually like some more now as I type...
-2 ham/cheese/jalapeno tortillas.

After Spanish Class #2 I ate:
-2 tostadas with avocado &
-A bowl full of papaya.

After teaching my night class I ate:
-3 Yakis (which are really spicy chips.  Really good though!)
-Chicken and zucchini soup.
-The BEST chile relleno I have ever had in my life!  &
-One awesome cup of homemade juice.

Did you get all of that?  Kinda ridiculous right?  The best part is, is that I made a new friend.  In my dreams that is.  I had a dream last night that I met this really awesome woman who's dream was to make an amazing restaurant named after her.  Well, after a lot of sweat and hard work, we made a pretty stinkin' amazing restaurant if I do say so myself.  The front room was super chill and colorful, but the best part was the back of the store.  You walk through these curtains and all of a sudden your standing in the middle of a fresh market with apples, bananas, and anything else you wanted.  It truly was amazing!  The not so great part, was when life had to take it's course.  I remember thinking that I wanted this woman and her restaurant only a walk away for the rest of my life.  However, I had other duties.  Not sure what they were, but I had to leave the town where we had started her life dream.  Then I woke up.  Friend, food, and restaurant all gone.

I'm not sure what this dream even means, but it involved food, like I don't get enough of it in my life.  As you can see, that is not a problem here!  I just kind of feel guilty about eating all the time, but at the same time, I'm like, "Hey, I'm on an extended vacation.  Give me a break." (KitKat anyone?  =P) My Mom and Pop's definitely have nothing to worry about, especially having their crazy daughter starve to death in Mexico.  :-)
