Excited? Absolutely. In just a few days I will be back in Africa. I can hardly wait to get there. To see my family again is going to be such a huge blessing. The smell of the ocean, the wind that loves to blow, the familiar sights and sounds of the place that I grew up in are all things I can hardly wait to experience again. Africa is an amazing place–so unique and so absolutely different to life here in the USA. I will take heaps of pictures to share here.
Goodness–I am trying to get my heart around the fact that I am going to be away from my amazing hubby and other three kids for nine days. That is hard for me.
Needless to say, my boys are beyond excited. The thought of two full days of traveling each way is just heaven on earth to them. Not me. But, I know it passes quickly. We do have an 8 hour layover in London. I am so looking forward to spending the time with one of my best friends. We have not seen each other for five years–we have so much catching up to do. Another little blessing along the way.
I stand in awe of God’s faithfulness in my life. The way He blesses me is so beyond my wildest expectation. I am so grateful for His gift of this trip. So grateful to the ones who have blessed me exceedingly, abundantly more than I could ever have asked for. Thank you, dear friends.
I love this picture of my two little ones playing in the snow on Saturday. We got a ridiculous amount of snow in two days. I mean, serious! I have never lived in a place with such strange weather–almost two feet of snow in two days, and then shorts and T-shirts the next day. Too weird.
The remains (in a parking lot) of the biggest snow storm we have experienced since living here. This little pile of snow was 20 feet high!
