Thankful, very thankful. . .

There is so many things I am thankful for. Really, I am overwhelmed.
God is good, He is SO good! I'm super thankful for this amazing little boy I get the chance to take care of each and every day! Um, actually, I take care of him at night too when he decides he needs a cuddle from Mom.
I'm thankful for my husband's safe return from Africa. I'm thankful for his amazing trip and experience and the amazing friends he got the
chance to meet while learning about the amazing country and people of Africa.
I bet you didn't think a person could use amazing that much, did you?

And, I really want to learn to carry my babies like they do. Isn't it amazing?

I'm also thankful I am not the one that has to drive this truck. I mean, really, only in Africa.

I'm also SO thankful for:
  • Grandparents in MT
  • G-pa in Taiwan
  • Lots of awesome (bet you thought I was going to use amazing :) Uncles and Aunts all over the place
  • Lots of super fun cousins
  • Amazing (there it is again) Friends!
  • God
  • So much more (don't worry, I will stop, I could go on forever)

I had the chance in a bible study to write down everything I am thankful from from A to Z. and, guess what, it was easy. I was almost bummed when the alphabet ran out of letters. I have SO much to be thankful for in my life.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

When Dad was in Africa. . .

First, I was a little bummed that Dad seemed to disappear. Everyone kept saying he went to Africa. Where is Africa?Then, I was so SURPRISED when Grandpa and Grandma showed up! We had SO much fun! I think they might like me!

And, I think I like them. Actually, I love them!

Thanks so much for coming Dad and Mom! We had so much fun (even visiting relatives) and got so much work done too. Thanks for the amazing visit and for our your work to help us out! We love you!

Bye Grandpa and Grandma! I miss you already

Off to Africa!!

So. . . after a very busy week with less than 2 hours of sleep in last two days, Danny is on his way to Africa!!!! We drove to Fargo this morning at 2:30am. He will then fly first to Minneapolis, then onto Seattle, then to Paris, and finally arrive in Chad!

Please pray for Danny and the team for safe travel!

Pray that Danny is able to get some sleep on the plane.

Pray for me as I miss my husband!

Thanks! I will keep you updated as I hear from Danny.

(And, I did inform him that communication with your wife at

least once during a mission trip to Africa

was something that was expected by me!!!!
Hope you have an amazing experience that challenges you and teaches you even more about our awesome God!
