Getting ready


Haven't had a lot of time to blog - I'm doing last minute stuff to get ready to leave for Africa. I am all packed except for a few items which just have to be tossed in my bag after I get dressed to leave. It's been a day of running around getting the last minute small items that I've needed to take with me.

I cleared my schedule of things to spend more time with the fam before I leave. Tonight we went to dinner -Japanese - our family favorite.

Last night I did one of the hardest things I've ever done...wrote letters to my husband and the kids that I hope no one ever has to give them. (In case you're wondering I did not follow Rosemay's advice to talk to them before I left...I decided to write a letter and that way hopefully they will never have to deal with it.)

I have a lot of faith that they never will have to deal with it. So many people are praying for me - this is going to be a great trip filled with God's presence, power and protection.

I'm going to try to blog if I get a moment or two on the computer while I'm there, so be watching, although I definitely won't be monster-blogging like I normally do. G'night...time to snuggle with Larry for one of the last times until I leave...oh how I'll miss him.
