Well, I'm almost done packing. I've got a few things left on my list and that will all come together in the next couple of hours... some stuff is frozen and that'll have to wait til tomorrow, I'll pack it last minute (like the frozen chicken I'm taking with me!).
I can't tell you all how thankful I am for your prayers. This is a very anxious time for me and it means a lot that you guys are lifting up my flight and safety in your prayers.
I found out today that mom can see me safely onto the plane... that's a huge relief for both me and mom and dad. I also was told that I can ask for 'pre-boarding' so that I can talk to the flight attendants so they're all aware of my situation and my anxieties. Plus, that way they won't be caught off guard if I have a seizure during flight. I'm praying against seizures for this entire trip but most importantly for the flights.
I'm looking at my nearly-packed suitcases and I'm just so freakin' excited I can't hardly think straight enough to type at the same time.
And for those of you who are following my 'swear jar' (I gave up swearing for Lent)... the tally as of last night was $13.25. I've practically eliminated all the really foul words and am working on the smaller 'offensive' words. This chunk of scripture is on the wall in the church office. "... Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." (Phillipians 4:8) I've been trying to think on those things when I'm fed-up and want to curse. Let me tell you, I've come up with some creative ways to express frustration!
I'm going to sign off for now. This time tomorrow I'll be safely in Nova Scotia!
Moving Forward with Joy!
