Well, I have had an awesome weekend(the last before I leave). We had a going away party Saturday with my family and friends. I am so thankful to have such an amazing group of people that I love dearly and make me feel so loved. Sunday I went to church with my cousin to hear him speak and then we went to raleigh and ate cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory and saw Jack Ryan at the IMAX theater. Overall it has been a great weekend.
This week I have been going through my room trying to clean up and determine what I have left to pack. It is difficult trying to pack for a year away from home! It’s hard to believe that in two days I will be flying out to head to Paris!! I am of course praying for safe flights. Hopefully I won’t have any problems because of the snow here.
I think the hardest part of this is going to be saying goodbye to my friends and family. Monday night I said goodbye to one of my best friends. I am going to miss her so much. I can’t even imagine how it will feel Friday as I say goodbye to my family at the airport. I am glad we will have Skype and FaceTime as a way to communicate.
Hopefully I can finish getting packed tomorrow. I am going to be praying for safety of travel as I leave Friday. Prayers greatly appreciated. 🙂
