I'm here, I'm stressed, but I'm here. I leave for the Dominican Republic in less than 24 hrs. and boy do I have alot to do still! I won't bore you with all the fun details of what I have to do but I will just ask that you keep me in your prayers for the next week! Pray that all my flights are smooth and that maybe "Sulley the Hero" pilot decided this week to all of a sudden fly for AA and he will be my pilot! Pray for my intestinal fortitude so that most of my time is not spent in the bathroom! Pray for my kids and Bobby so that their week without mom is ok, not too great, I still want to be needed when I get home! And lastly, pray for those that I will be taking care of. I feel so blessed to be able to use my God given talents to help those in need! I'm going into this with a open mind as well as a open heart and I can't wait to get back and to share with you my experience! Love, peace and happiness to you all!

Help a sister out!

Happy New Year! Boy is this month a busy one for me! Now that the holiday's have passed and the Christmas tree has been packed away I can start focusing on my trip to the Dominican Republic! 18 days and counting! I am so excited as I begin to pack! I leave January 24th! As if I'm not busy enough and I have a hard enough time updating this blog, I'm starting another one! This one will be of my travel to the DR. I plan on journaling every day as way to reflect on my experiences and to be able to share with you and all those who have helped me achieve my dream of going on a medical mission. I know I won't be able to blog live from the DR but once I get back I will have a day by day recount!
Here is where you come in! I need a name for this new blog! Leave me your suggestions in my comment box! I would love to hear what you think! It can be a play on words, sentimental, whatever! Let's hear it!
One more thing, please keep me and my family in your prayers. I'm starting to get a little antsy about the plane ride. My kids have also been very vocal about their anxiety about me leaving for this long and Payton thinks my plane will crash! I've tried reasoning him but I can tell it upsets him. He can be a stinker sometimes but it just touches me so much that he worries like that! I just ask God for his love and protection and that my family will put their trust in him! Thanks!
