Post DR Mission trip Thankfulness #6
My bed! After painting a rental all day, it felt great to sleep in my bed with the comfy memory foam mattress. In the DR to have a mattress was a luxury, and many of them was the main area of the room for sitting. Many had nets above them to cover them from flies or mosquitoes, or pieces of plastic to protect them from the rain. In one home it was built up on buckets, as it rain comes in the holes in the walls and floods the floor frequently. There was one made of iron bars, the mother wrapping clothing around the bars to make softer… I am so blessed to have my bed!
