I know, I know, it's girlish and childish, but I'm excited! And about ready to cry.

I was playing DF when I randomly decided to check my GE account. I saw my summary and didn't believe my eyes. So I opened the financial report, seeing and believing and all that. "Oh, my, freakin', gosh." All dragged out. Crystal comes over. "What?!" Mom's in the bedroom talking to Dad so I shout out. "Mom! The church gave me a 1000 dollar donation!" Mom in the bedroom, "What?" She comes out and I point it out on the screen. $1000.

That's why I'm about to cry. If we count the money I sent in this morning, (which won't be registered in the account for a week, or maybe two) I have $774 til I'm there. I'm really going. My dear Lord, what am I doing? Germany? Poland? I'm going to need a lot of help. Just not in the money department anymore. *grins*

We checked Crystal's account too. Another 1000.

Speaking of my trip, (and speaking...) Mrs. Byrom has asked all of the missions kids to speak on April 15th at the Alliance Men and Women meeting. A five minute speech. I think I might write mine first, if only to clear my head.

I am freakin' going to Germany!

Now all I have to do is set up my domestic travel. (I know I'm procrastinating. Don't remind me.) The doctor's appointment got moved to April 11th *sighs* so I still can't get my TRF in. The passport should be coming in anytime now. All I have left to do is ready myself.

Maybe it's a good thing that I have a few months for this part. I have the feeling I'm going to need it.

God bless,
Live the Life you've been Given,
Shine always,

Writing Style

We were talking at breakfast this morning (Bob Evan's!) about Crystal and desire to write. I think it's a wonderful thing, naturally, but Mom was wondering about whether she could. Da said what I usually say to Crystal, you have to practice and learn and try and then you can see if it'll work.

But then I started thinking about something else. What about script-writing. Now, I don't know a lot about it, but I think that might be a possibility for Crystal. It's such a different way of writing. I'll have to look up something soon. We'll see. It's an interesting possibility at any rate.

I'll try to post again soon. I will say before I'm gone that I'm almost half way. Like a hundred dollars short! Wee!

God bless
