Packing to leave - getting things in order - taking care of details has been the main focus of our second born the last few days. And as a result - the focus of the Dad and Mom of the the house too. Although with many of the little ones still sick - a lot of my focus has been on on helping the poor little ones feel better, too. (But praise God - they woke up this morning just fine!!!)
My heart aches right now - which is something not uncommon to moms of older children, I'm sure!! Goodbyes just are not fun. But I know Daniel is seeking to follow God. And while I am apprehensive because my Mama's heart is having a hard time letting go, I am excited for him. Two days ago he turned 20 years old!! I just don't know where the time went!!! Somehow, here we are - just having sent him off to be a missionary to a foreign land - to work for God in a distant place. My head and heart are having a hard time getting around the idea that he could possibly be old enough for this - and yet - he is. And now - I am sooo looking forward to our next trip to the airport to pick him up - sometime - in 6 months or a year - only God knows that answer to that!
