Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
In the midst of all of the preparations for our departure, we have found an oasis of rest.
We are so grateful to my mother for opening her home and heart this week. It has been such an incredible blessing to be able to come to North Carolina and forget about (almost) everything that is so very pending. If I were to list all the goals that must be attained between now and September, this would be a boring post for you.
I know also that partially she wanted us here before we go - for herself. We are really enjoying the time with her and have had the chance to make some great memories. We have also been able to share the vision for the work in Haiti. She is reading "Hope For Haiti" for a little history and we've been able to alleviate (hopefully) some of her concerns.
It's been such a relaxing day that I almost don't want to go back home. But in our reality show, vacations don't last forever.
I'm glad Mom was able to experience our family in this stage of life, in this transition to the next level. On the home front, things are moving so quickly that I think I am going to blink and find myself in Haiti.
Thanks, Mom for such a great time. I hope you were as blessed by this time together as much as we have been.
I arise up and call you "Blessed"
