As some of you know, my eldest goes to a maritime academy. Part of his education is on merchant vessels.
He is heading to Mozambique on a merchant vessel to deliver a load of grain to world vision.
Thanks to the internet I can track his ships whereabouts. Presently their ship is about 1000 mile off the coast of Brazil and south of the equator.
That sounds so "in the middle of no where" It sounds so vulnerable.
I know he is living his dream, as I sit here with a lump in my throat thinking of all the water surrounding that vessel, no railings, one wrong move and you are overboard.
I am not certain why I am writing this and wonder if prayers should be said for me or my son.
I am feeling rather selfish about my own needs for his safety over his needs to live his dream.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c
