Small Bites

My friend that some of you have lovingly encouraged, briefly wrote to tell me she is blown over. She is so thankful for your words. She promises to write more soon, and I'll share anything I can.

Several of you have called or emailed me about Shawn's heart. So far, we have not received the formal recommendation from the cardiologist. I am trying to get that this week. I promise to post an update....believe me, it is too much on my mind for me to forget! Thank you all for your prayers and your comments. They are dear to me and my family.

NEWSFLASH**** I applied for my passport this week! Yup. I've never had a passport. And guess what.....I am going on a Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic with my church in the spring, and hopefully again next summer, and hopefully at least 2 times per year from now on. I am so excited. I have done local missions, but have never left the comfort of my home, or left my children for an extended period of time. At some point in the future, I'll post about the mission, including the amount of $$ that I need to raise (hint hint) stay tuned!

awesome!! I keep thinking it would be so great to make short missions a part of my family's life....I went to Central America for 3 months my last year of college, but not since. I can't wait to hear more about this.
