IT WAS AMAZING.
It was my first time on an airplane, first time out of Michigan, and my first time on the OCEAN.
God showed me, if I make a plan and work really hard to save my money, I can travel to different places and have sooooooo much fun.
I saw an awesome aquarium with a Shark at Ripley's Believe It or Not.
YES. That's a TV show back in the day in case you didn't know :) HaHa
I dressed up at the "Old Fashion Store" with two fun lady managers.
They gave me a free photo. I LOVE IT.
I went to an amusement park and rode a ferris wheel 3 times before midnight.
We were night owls. HAHA
I walked on a pier and watched the sunset.
I went to an "I LOVE SUGAR" store. I know you all wish you were there :)
I went to AWESOME restaurants with AMAZING food, and lots of GREAT stores.
I went to the beach and wrote friends names in the sand, relaxed in the pool, hot tub, and so much more.
I'm a great photographer and took lots of pictures as you can see on the screen.
God also showed me I AM VERY BRAVE
I tried new things like flying on an airplane. I sat in the pilot's seat in the cockpit.
It was soooo AWESOME. They wouldn't let Patricia, sorry HAHA :)
So she stayed in the doorway and took my photo.
I went in a helicopter over the ocean. I had sooo much fun.
I'm GLAD I did it.
I was afraid to do these things at first, but not afterwards.
I was VERY BRAVE to take this journey.
God was with me and so was Sparrow House.
God also showed me what happy and sad tears were.
I had happy tears all week. Everyone was smiling, cheerful, and so nice.
They were kind and FUN. They celebrated me everywhere I went and gave me gifts.
I was a celebrity :)
People sang to me and serenaded me. A butterfly lady danced with me.
People loved that it was my 30th birthday.
I got lots of free things.
I got all of that and more. I thanked every person for being so nice.
They made my vacation week very special.
When the trip was over, I had sad tears.
I knew I would miss all those people that were so nice to me.
And it went way too fast. I wasn't ready to leave.
But, it's okay. God will help me save my hard earned money for another trip,
hopefully SOON :)
