It Hit Me....

After receiving an email from our Uganda trip's team leader letting us know it's "less than 100 days until we're Uganda bound", I started to get nervous. I haven't renewed my passport! I haven't gotten my shots! I haven't raised enough $! I haven't (fill in the blank)! Luckily, it's one week before TAKS testing, so it wasn't hard to take an afternoon off to get some of it crossed off my list. (And if you didn't hear the total sarcasm in that then you need to get your "eyes" fixed). Passport renewed (check). Hep A&B shots (check). I feel a little better now.

I'm already getting sad about missing this little powdered sugar face

Uganda has been instrumental in so many things already. I can't help but know that God placed it on my heart for a reason. One being the smallest of all - it helped start this passion of mine. I was brainstorming ways to fund the trip, and low and behold, one painted buffet later......a business formed. But two - it helped me realize what God's call actually felt like. I never heard Him say, "GO FLO" in so many words. But also, He never let me be at peace, in my heart, until I finally committed. I wavered for months.......not wanting to give up my time with my summer......but I couldn't rest until I said yes.

On a totally unrelated note: I scored this rug while junkin' the other day. It was a STEAL! And, of course, fits perfectly in my house. Can I keep it?!? Please?
It'll be for sale in my booth next week.
