I`m not sure how I feel about my daughter being so far away. She should be in New Zealand by now. With the time change, they actually lost a day by flying there. Isn`t that weird? And it`s winter there, which gives you an idea of how far away it truly is!
Even once she arrived on the west coast, she still didn`t have enough money raised to get to NZ, so we had a bit of a stressful situation. I scraped together what I could and an aunt and uncle in NY very graciously helped her out as well. She has been raising support money for this trip for 2 or 3 months and did pretty well. Thanks to a couple J-Landers who also contributed! It`s so exciting to think that because people stepped up to sponsor this trip, that lives will be forever changed; people will hear about Jesus!!
So I`m taking the advice that some of you gave me to relax now and enjoy some "me" time. I have 3 days off and boy, do I feel like I need it.
Today my friend Janice and I had lunch and ran some errands together. I got some good books at the library. :) I went to the bank, I paid bills, did laundry, and got through a mountain of paperwork.
I`m off to relax and enjoy my evening .......
ps --- don`t get me wrong, I`m happy she has this opportunity . I guess I`m just missing her.
