Thank you all for your sweet comments and encouraging words yesterday.

I just sort of threw it out there and you all picked up on how i was feeling and responded. That meant a lot. Thank you.

Well this morning started off kind of rough but brightened considerably when i saw my name as the winner of Pam Warden's art giveaway!

I'm really excited because i've been browsing through her art every once is a while and love it. Some make me smile and some make me laugh!

I get to choose which print i want and can't decide between these two...

oooh, that is a tough one!...but I think my vote is for the first one...though you really can't go wrong with either choice!!

And I'm sorry I missed your blog yesterday. I didn't realize that your journey there is winding down and that you will be returning to the states. I'm sure it is very hard to leave, as well as have to carefully choose what can come with you. I'm pretty sentimental about things too, so I'm totally feel'in your heart right now! Just know that prayers are going up for you during this time of transition. Just trust in the Lord and keep your eyes focused on the path He has set before you...there will be rewards there, too!! I will be praying that His grace brings you comfort and peace as you prepare your hearts and home for the move.

Blessing and BIG Hugs, my friend! <><

I saw that you were the winner at Pam's! So exciting! I think the second one is very appropriate! But I do love her art and fun take on things!

I have another word of advice about how you are feeling. Try to live in the moment. While you are there in Northern Ireland love it to it's fullness. Don't begin to pull away! When it is time to leave, look ahead to seeing your family, beginning the last phase of your training. How you handle the changes will influence both Geoff and the boys. You are so fortunate to be so joyfully fulfilled where ever you are, Melissa. Just think of the beautiful friendships you have around the world!

Remember we love you and if you have a long layover we would be delighted to come spend a few hours at the airport with you all again!

I love both of those! Tough choice! I was all about number 1, until I saw number two!

Congratulations on your win! They are both cute, but if it was me, I'd pick the one about the morning and opening my eyes, because I am not a morning person! Ha! Ha!
