Well, this is it. In about 12 hours I'll be heading to the airport to board a plane to Zambia. As I type this I am beyond exhausted. I've seen more of Target, Walmart and CVS this week than the law allows.

The trip was never more "real" to me than it was these past two weeks and it my... anxiety manifest in funny ways... like the day I got to work and realized, to my horror, that I had only put deodorant under ONE arm!!! It also manifest in some less-than-funny ways - like my bout with bronchitis the last week.

It's been a whirlwind trying to wind things up at work and home while trying to get everything done for my trip. As I sit here on the brink of total exhaustion, I can say that I am ready. Ready for what God has in store. I look forward to drinking in every moment and savoring each experience. I also look forward to sharing everything with you when I get back.

Till then, stay well, be blessed, and be a blessing. Happy Sunday all!
