Leipzig, Germany

That's where Andrew called me from last night to talk, report, tell me he loves me, pray with me, and say goodnight. I then proceeded to sleep like a baby for the next 10 hours. I was so glad to hear his voice. And thank heaven for international rechargeable phone cards!

Yesterday was hard. Can't even begin to pretend it wasn't. But I had lots of support. Both sets of parents plus Seth. Andrew's parents had to leave early this morning, though, and now the rest of us are just concentrating on getting us moved out of our little house in Hinesville.

We are so glad to have finally taken a step in this new part of life. Not that we love the part, but the steps will add up after a while and then he'll be home! And we're so glad not to be dreading "d-day" anymore. It's come and gone. And now we just have to be strong and receive the grace for the day...and keep ourselves busy so the days will go by!

A year just feels so long.

A year does sound like a long time but remember when you look at an entire lifetime, a year is just a "blip". And, you can spend the rest of your lives "making up for the year"...now, that doesn't sound so bad does it?

Hey--hurry and get back to Oregon, you are missing a great "snow day".

Love you
Aunt Becky
