The night before EVERYTHING changes....

Tomorrow we board the plane for Africa! At long last.
I am looking forward to the long flight with 22 hours of NO TO DO LIST, and books, snoozing...praying....:)
Such a blessing that my eldest, Nick, gets to go with me and have his 12th birthday in Ethiopia.
I wonder if Hiywat (Seen it spelled many ways)....Olivia.... knows we are coming...or will Tuesday am be a big surprize for her?
Would you pray for our safe journey? For SMOOOOTH final paperwork with no issues? For safety abroad, for our meeting with Olivia....for my children and pets staying home, my parents......all of it.
I have a friend helping to post, hopefully, when I send her update by email..... so stay tuned!
Blessings to all who have walked this journey with us in prayers and tears. I know you are out there.
