I was greatly anticipating a trip to Portland last week because my list had grown long of reasons to go. My cousins were in town and after a couple years of missed connections, I was looking forward to time together. I was giddy to meet my college roommate’s new baby. After years of praying, complications, and losing their firstborn daughter, by God’s grace they have a little boy and I didn’t want to wait any longer to meet him. My other cousin was moving into a new house and I committed to spending a day and a half helping her get settled. I planned a morning of prayer with my aunt who does healing prayer ministry. I called up another close friend for an overnight and coffee on New Year’s Eve.
Sean and I decided it would be good for me to have time with Darla so I invited her to come with me. Then because of his work schedule, Sean suggested I take Haley so that he’d be flexible with just the boys.
Just throwing myself out there a bit...
