Well, I just got back from being out in New York with my family (minus my dad; he's not up for much traveling...but maybe he'll venture out to visit me in Haiti..just maybe! Add that to my prayer list ;) ) for a few days for a wedding. It was such a great time and a beautiful wedding! It was weird for me to be at the Minneapolis airport and not be headed to Haiti...I thought about how the next time I will be at the Minneapolis airport I will be on my way to Haiti for the year. What a different experience it will be then. I can't even begin to imagine all the emotions that morning is going to bring.
Since I've been back, I've had a flood of emotions and the feeling of the never ending to do list. I think for the first time today it hit me that in 12 days I will be going to Haiti for year. Leaving behind what is familiar and comfortable and stepping out into a world of uncertainties. I think about my family, my relationships, my friendships, my Murphy, even my acquaintance and how much that will all change in just 12 days. It's a little scary, but yet super exciting at the same time.
Although this day, and I'm sure then next 12 will be too, was a roller-coaster of emotions; I always come back to what I know and what I believe and that is GOD IS GOOD and I fully TRUST that HE has me on this journey and HE has the perfect plan.
