"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

preparations


A few gathered dorm room essentials.I know Meg is excited about setting her room up and making it feel cozy.  She, like me, loves to decorate and arrange rooms. 


And check out this duffel bag.  Isn't it one of the coolest ever!!
Thank you T. J. Maxx


We are off in a few hours, Thanks again for the prayers and well wishes for my health, and for the new journeys awaiting us.  I feel much better today, both physically, and emotionally.  A little more ready to let my baby girl fly.

Blessings!

Hi Mary! I hate to hear you have not been feeling well... Praying for you to feel restored and renewed SOON! How fun... moving into college!! I hope she loves it and does well! College can be such a great experience... is she going to a big or small college? Well... it will probably be exhausting getting her moved in and somewhat settled but worth sharing this moment with her!!

(Hugs)
