Can anyone tell me why it is that two small children require so much stuff for a short get away? Honestly it looks like we are moving. We have play clothes, good clothes, hunting clothes(yes, Cohen is going hunting with my uncle), sleeping clothes, lots of underwear and socks, hairbows for Taegan, shoes, bath stuff, toys, books, just in case medicines, favorite snacks and juice.....you get my drift! I think I should've rented a UHAUL!
I am so tired from getting all of their stuff together that I don't want to get my stuff packed now. I will undoubtedly forget something, I always do. But I am looking so forward to spending time with the youth girls and guys, not to mention my best girl friends. I think it will actually be a bit of a break for me. At least the teenagers can bathe and wipe themselves! They always make me laugh too! Where they come up with some of the stuff they say, I'll never know.
I hope we all get something spiritual out of this trip, get to know each other better, and find common ground to spread the Holy Word when we get back! I am a little worried about all the traffic and people that will be there on New Year's Eve and Day, but I have prayed for the Lord to keep us safe and bring us back home safe. And that is my prayer for all of you out there as well. Have a safe and wonderful New Year!! Most importantly thank God for where you have been the past year (even if it has not been where you wanted to be, its a part of His plan), where you are now (no matter where you are-it could be worse), and where you are going (because you have the oppurtunity to be better)!
