Busy-ness and Butterflies

Dear loyal reader (s),

I know that you are expecting a post today continuing "our story" - how our family ended up living and working in Brazil.  But, I am putting my oldest daughter on a plane Sunday morning to go to Africa for 2 months.  We are so busy getting everything ready.  She and I both have nervous stomachs.  We talked about it this morning over coffee and croissants at our favorite coffee shop.  We are not scared.  I am not scared.  OK, I am a little nervous about her flying half way around the world alone.  But once she gets there, I know she will be fine.  I do, however, have a bad case of butterflies in the stomach.  Nervous excitement.  I am totally excited for her - for our whole family and what we will experience through her trip.  I am happy, not sad.  But.....based on all this emotion going on in my head, I just can't make my mind go back 10 years to write the continuation of "our story".  Not today.  So, I know you will understand and forgive.  Please remember Bronwyn in your prayers and keep up with her experience through her blog.

Much love,


  1. I'm so excited for Bronwyn! Glad you two had coffee for me. :)

  2. I'm following Bronwyn and trying to write her notes occassionally. Hope you are all well. We miss you.

    Peace in Him.
