You know the tune...🎵100 bottles of beer on the wall🎵
well, here's my version...
750 washcloths for India, 750 washcloths,
knit one up, pack it to go
749 more washcloths for India!
What an exciting morning the travelers had on Saturday as we gathered one last time to go over final details, check-in with how everyone is doing and load up our suitcases. It's amazing that we got everything into our luggage, and kept it at one checked bag per person!😲 And, thanks to Jordan for being willing to stand on the scale...now we know our bags all fall into the allowable weight range!
Although Emma couldn't be with us for the Packing Party, we know she was with us in spirit and no doubt preparing herself down in St. Louis! 😂
This morning at Immanuel UCC was that heartfelt time when our church family sends us off with a blessing and their well wishes... I give thanks for all the love and support of our congregation; their prayers and financial contributions certainly lighten our heavy burden of travel and strengthen our hearts for what lies ahead. 🙏💝
One final note... The other day when Sophie and I popped into Coffee Corner for a "treat yourself" breakfast, we found ourselves in a conversation with our barista about our upcoming trip; she was so sweet and genuinely interested in what we were saying, then when she delivered our food this is how it came...
She has no idea how her words of encouragement touched us, that is unless she's checking out our blog...I hope so!! 💕
If you have the chance to share supportive, encouraging words to my fellow travelers, please do so. It is so uplifting knowing people are behind you, and in times of uncertainty that they are sending good vibes your way!!
My motto for this trip...
In a world where you can be anything, be kind!
Now we wait...⌛
p.s. can you tell I'm lovin' the new emoji feature! 😉
