Pray for me today. My baby girl is leaving the state on a mission trip. She's only been away from me a few times and always someplace safe with people that are either family or almost family. Never on a mission trip to a homeless shelter. Of course, she is with caring and loving adults.
She's only going to be gone until Sunday night. I know that she'll do well and this will be a learning experience. It's just really hard to see them grow up and do things without me! They are still supposed to be babies that are totally dependent on mom!
Oh, I know in my heart that she still needs me, both of my kids do. It just seems that this is the beginning of growing up and I don't think I'm really ready for this. I'm proud that they both are involved and willing to volunteer to help others. My husband and I have tried hard to show our kids that giving to others is very important. It does seem to be working....but I'm not really sure that I like them doing it by themselves!
I just need everybody today to pray for me and for her and the other kids. Especially me!
