Well, that's it.
Round one paperwork is complete.
I placed it, trustingly, in the hands of the seemingly confident FedEx worker standing on the opposite side of the counter. It may or may not have looked a bit like one of those scenes from a comedy movie, where the giver of the package doesn't really 'let go' of the package and the receiver of the package has to 'pry' said package out of the givers hands.
I'll leave it that up to your imagination.
It's an odd feeling. Knowing that now, it's out of my hands, beyond my control. (whoa, wait a second, did I just say, out.of.my.control!?!) Yep, I sure did! Really, I know God's been in control all this time, but at least He was using me a little bit more. Now, He's truly strengthening my patience as I simply...wait.
I should mention though, that there ARE still other things going on while I wait. I'm not simply sitting idle. (That would be nice though for a minute, maybe.)
He is still using me, just for other things...
There are still fundraisers going on. And grants to apply for and specialists to meet and a nursery to decorate and...well you get the idea...still busy.
You can check out the Puzzle Fundraiser...here and the Bracelet Brigade...here. The puzzle is going to look pretty great in L's nursery. I can't wait to see it complete and hanging on her wall! And I know MANY people have been sporting braided bracelets on their wrists in honor of the Little Bear.
You can also soon read about the upcoming GARAGE SALE (which will be happening on September 15). I will be blogging with more details on that super exciting event!
So, as you can see, there are still things going on to keep busy with but even while keeping busy, I will still be anxiously awaiting the news of when I finally get to kiss this face...
