The Adventure Begins...

So, I promised a post about how God used my long engagement for good, but I'm all out of time. Suffice it to say that a year ago, I cried every time my family talked about Christmas presents and whether we should pull names since there are so many of us (I ended up being the one person that exchanged gifts with everyone), and this year I happily watched as they pulled names without including me at all. My point is, I'm not usually good with change, but I think with the long engagement I've had, God has been able to prepare me and walk me through all the emotions little by little.

I leave, as in move to another country, in an hour and a half!

My man has been here since late Thursday night, and in case anyone wasn't sure, I've got an awesome man to become my husband. This was an exhausting, overwhelming weekend for him. But he managed to walk it out quite gracefully, AND consistently put his own feelings aside to help me walk out my good-byes. Which, all things considered, I've handled pretty well. There must be people praying for me! Don't get me wrong, there were tears each time I said good-bye to the next person, but only ever a few, and I never got overwhelmed by sadness or anything.

That's a really short, doesn't do it justice, description of where I'm at and what I'm up to. But I gotta get moving.

One more thing....FB and my family really connected well, I think. Which is awesome for me.

Ok, next time I write, I'll be in Mexico. I have no clue when that will be, but I will be back. Promise.

Godspeed! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

I am glad I officially got to meet him in person, although I wish that my brain wasn't so foggy and I could remember some Spanish for conversation. :(
I will be thinking of you...and expecting pictures (when possible).

Wow!! So glad it went well. I can't believe you're 'gone' now. Can't wait to hear more details.
