We Made It!

It is just after midnight and we are finally settled in our rooms and anxious to crawl into a nice warm bed...at least I am!

Left the church just after 7:00am with Alex and a few parents waving us on our way. We had our regular Timmies stop in Mallorytown and had one roll up the rim to win winner - a donut I think.

It was a long trip with a few hiccups...it took us almost an hour and half to get across the bridge and through Customs (it has never taken us more than about 15 mintues...), we watched the under part of a truck cab burst into movie style flames, we now know that a large drink in the US = many pits stops and one of the vans has a leaky tire which needed filling regularly....we are on top of getting it fixed.

Stopped at Wendy's for lunch, Cracker Barrel for dinner and a variety of gas stations along the way. It was wonderful to see the snow all gone and the green grass growing and I think the trees out front of the hotel are actually in bloom. I can confirm this in the morning when I see them in the daylight.

God has many things in store for us...now we just have to wait and see.

The quote on Shelley's desk calendar for today is:
"When you engage in fulfilling the needs of others, your own needs are fulfilled as a by-product"

How very appropriate for the beginning of this journey.

Glad to hear that you made it safe...despite some of the difficulties. We are thinking of you and are anxious to see how things progress along the way. Have a great time.
