I know, this is an awful pic mostly because my car windows were so dirty (they still are 🤦🏼♀️). But this perfectly captures a snippet of the 2 hour and 15 minutes of waiting to cross the border. (And, Star Wars!!!) There were SO many street vendors selling all sorts of things including food. And a lot of them were carrying so much stuff! One guy even cleaned my windshield.
I told my brother that it is amazing to me how wealthy (overall) we are here in the U.S. But right next door, the people live in so much poverty. It was seriously so sad and quite humbling to watch these people for over two hours. Some were injured or disabled, and my heart broke even more.
I feel so blessed to have a roof over my head, food on my table, clothes on my back, a bed to sleep in, a car to drive, and a job where I don't have to be in the hot sun walking around begging people to help me.
