I'm leavin' on a jet plane....

But I do know when I'll be back again. Hopefully Saturday May 7th, when my flight is scheduled to arrive back home.

I'll be in Michigan for an entire week for The Journey, which is put on by Open Hearts Ministry. I attended this conference in 2007, and I'm going back to go through the second book - for myself and to receive additional training so that I can help lead and facilitate these groups at home.

The week is intense and very full, but I am looking forward to all of it!

My only anxieties are the usual flying-by-myself worries and leaving Tommy for an entire week. It will be the longest I've ever been away from him and my mama heart is aching a little bit at the thought of not seeing his precious little face every day - I'm worried he will think I've left him forever and he will be confused as to where I went. I've been told these worries are "normal" at least, but it's offered little consolation. I will miss him terribly regardless. *sigh*

I leave dark and early on Sunday morning and should be in Michigan by the afternoon. So me and my little blog will be MIA until the following week.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to figure out how to fit my entire closet in to one very small looking suitcase.


  1. I am excited and hopeful for you and your "journey." I pray you will experience the Lord in new and marvelous ways.

    Don't worry...I'll help you squeeze all the clothes in. I've become an expert. ;)

    love you!!!
