It Is More Fun

Remember my last post in December? It’s the one in which I mentioned my friend Andrea and her birthday on the 22nd. Guess what? On the following Saturday I picked her up at Dublin airport. She stayed with us for a week.

It has been such a treat, having her over again. This time she didn’t visit to explore the Emerald Isle but to spend a week with us and to get an extra portion of rest and relax. She was able to wind down, yes, but she also assisted me in many ways: We baked and cooked and did the washing up together — which was so much more fun than doing it all alone 😉

I especially enjoyed walking on the beach with her, exchanging thoughts, praying and having meals together and talking about the Christian faith.

The Sunday before New Year’s Eve we went to church together and I was amazed how much English Andrea understands and speaks. I’m proud of her. Unlike us, she doesn’t get that many opportunities to hear and talk English. We are using the language every single day — while on the phone, in the stores, or just chatting with friends.

Andrea’s holiday in Ireland went by so fast again… In a way it’s hard for me to believe that she had been here for a visit and that she has gone back to Germany already. I sure miss her! Hopefully there will be many, many more holidays to come!

Thank you for sticking around and reading my Carmen In Ireland blog. Wishing you all a happy and blessed 2019.
