Shocked? I know my actions the last couple of years wouldn’t lead you to believe that I am that type of person. I would have bet money (lots of money) against someone who told me I was going to do some of things I have done over the last few years ~ I would have never believed them.
In the past I would have never:
-dreamt of traveling half way around the world one day to meet my daughter. (God willing). I have never been west of the Mississippi. I DON’T (didn't) travel far from home. But DANG I’m ready to go to China!!
-done a crazy thing like get in a car at 10:00 at night with a stranger. Drive to another stranger’s house, and then go with these two strangers all the way to Detroit and meet a third stranger. What the Hell was I thinking?
-gotten in the car, drive to some remote location in Georgia, to meet a group of women. Most of whom I didn’t know and the only thing we all had in common is that we are all adopting from China.
-gone back to Georgia a few months later and have one of the BEST weekends of my life with her and her. Firewood and asparagus will never ever be the same to me.
-Drive three hours every chance I can to spend a large quantity of time at Starbucks because time there with friends is priceless.
Nope I never would have believed any of this was possible. My family thinks I am crazy for meeting ‘Internet’ people. Knowing what I know now ~ I am so glad I stepped out of my little bubble. What a journey this continues to be.
Good Golly! This post was supposed to be a post about new dishes and how the change isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I must be in a sentimental mood. Dishes seem rather trivial now. I think I will just let this be. I’ll tell you about the new dishware another time. :o)
