I wish I had time to write. But I don't. Packing and preparing for my upcoming mission trip to inner-city Detroit. This is my 5 trip. My heart aches to leave my family, how I love them. How my heart aches for the ones in Detroit, how I love them.
I am most excited to see my friend Lisa. We met 3 years ago at Big A (vacation Bible school) We text throughout the year. I can't wait to see her again. She and I share a love for books.
I paced back and forth at the bookstore last night trying to decide what book to buy her. She likes "drama" books, I want to buy her Amish books. She'll read anything, my heart breaks that her bookshelves are not overflowing, but how much more do I desire her to have God's love overflowing.
I left with three books and a journal.
So I must run. I really should pack. Really, I should, I leave tomorrow... early in the morning; chances are I'll need to do some laundry.
I'm almost afraid to post it... because... it makes it more real.
Last week my dear friend, who is 8 or 9 inches taller than me, and is an ex-Tommy Hilfiger, Pantene (print/tele), Back Street Boy video model, recently lost 30 pounds... and now... weighs the same as me. We're the same age.
I currently weigh 2 pounds less than the day I gave birth to Justin.
I've also seen two recent photos of myself that I don't care for. At all.
