Well, here I go – I am officially a blogger! I am grateful to those friends and family who have expressed a desire to follow me on my “Ecuador journey”. Since I am new to this blog thing, I am totally open to coaching and constructive criticism. The Dashboard is a little intimidating – it’s all Greek to me! But I’ve made it this far (with my own hand-picked header picture – don’t you love it?) and if I can make this move to Ecuador, a blog should be “duck soup”! Now that I am finally able to have some time to stop and think (it has been a while!) I look forward to posting for you some of those thoughts, as well as my experiences.
But for those of you who know my journey this far, you know that my friends Gail and Jefferson traveled with me to help me get settled. They were invaluable in so many ways – I was abundantly blessed to have them here! But, their flight left at 1:00 a.m. this morning, so this is my first day alone in my new world – and poignantly, it also happens to be my mother’s birthday. So it seems fitting that my first post should be today. Little did we know two years ago on this day (when our sweet neighbor Mickey took us to brunch to celebrate the day) the journey that each of us would shortly embark on – she, less than two months later to be with Jesus and me, less than two years later to move to Ecuador! You just never know where the road on this journey will lead, but the good news is that both of us knew/know Who is leading and the final destination! So here you go Mommy – this first post is for you – happy birthday and please tell Jesus how much I love Him!
