Travel Status Update..

OK! Here goes! LOOK! My bags are packed. I am almost done. I have been scratching off items from my list one by one and my list is getting finished. Which leads me to one question... WHAT AM I MISSING??? LOL!!! It seems too easy. How can I be done? How is this possible? Am I REALLY READY??

After my semi meltdown moment last week I have been fine. I sometimes get so wrapped up in activity I forget to slow down and have my quiet time. That is SUCH a mistake. Those quiet times of prayer and reading and planning are what keep me going.

I took some time to rest, pray and get a lot of my adoption stuff done. Then we took a day to PLAY! PLAY! PLAY! yesterday. We went to church, then to eat, a little shopping and finally to see Narnia with the girls. It was a blast.

I feel refreshed and SUPER excited. Today I have spent the day getting some RLC stuff done and getting everyone set up to work with other RLC leaders for the next couple of weeks while I am gone. Tomorrow the girls go to grandma's house. They are thrilled to PIECES. They keep trying to get me on a plane earlier. They don't care if mommy leaves as long as I come back hauling a sister with me. Hee hee hee.... Hugs, Angel

Angel, I been thinking about you so much over the past few days and I am so thrilled for you. I actually took some time to read Kaiya's story from the beginning, because I was not a reader of your blog when you first announced her adoption. I am amazed at how quickly she is coming home! 7 months! How God brought her into your lives is so awesome and powerful. I just love it! Best wishes for a safe trip and I look forward to hearing all about it!
Lots of love!

Angel, the days will seem to both crawl and speed by as you near your time to leave. I remember so well the range of emotions up to leaving to bring home Kate. Savor every moment. I love reading your blog and I admire you so much. You are a true inspiration to so many.

I saw a book yesterday and thought of you. It is called "Does God know how to tie shoes?" It is a picture book for children that gives some really good answers to those tough questions that kids can come up with. Just thought i'd share that with ya.
