God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

One Super Busy Day

The day started early for me today!  I was standing in line at the polls this morning at 6:30 am.  Yes, I was actually in the line at 6:30 am.  There were about 15 people in front of me and it was dark and cold outside.  But, I knew if I was going to get to vote today it would have to be early, real early.  So, as you know the polls opened at 7:00 and I was back in my car at 7:18.  Not too bad of a wait time!

From there I headed home to get the kids dressed and fed before Miss. Lauren arrived at 8:30.  As soon as she arrived I headed to the hair dresser to take care of some grey roots.  Since I figure my hair will be pulled back into a pony tail for the next 4 weeks or so I thought it would be a good idea to take care of that so people don't mistake me for Anna Grace's grandma :)

The next stop on my busy day was to the Toyota dealership to have my van serviced for the big car trip.  I don't need to be breaking down with two kiddos in the car with me.  It took longer there than I anticipated, but the car has had an oil change, tires checked and been throughly looked over and deemed road worthy :)

Next stop, the car wash.  I use one of those places you wash it yourself.  It's just cheaper and I'm slightly embarassed by the sheer number of goldfish laying on the floorboard - so it's really better for me to take care of that on my own :)  The car has been washed and vacumed and is now ready to be packed to the top with suitcases!

Next stop - Sam's Club.  I just needed to stock up on some basics before we head out of town - you know toilet paper, paper towels, diapers, wipes, etc.  Forgetting that kids were out of school today - Sam's was packed, but at least I didn't have my kids with me thanks to our sweet Miss. Lauren!  We now have 5,000 rolls of toilet paper and 2,000 rolls of paper towels.

Once I got home I needed to sit down at the computer and pay some last minute bills.  The next thing I knew, it was 5:00 and time for Miss Luaren to go home.  We said good-bye to her and then the kids and I picked up dinner and brought it home.  Then bath and bedtime and I just now finished the packing of the suitcases!  I have to say, packing Anna Grace's bag was very emotional for me, more so than I thought it would be.  Packing all of the pajamas and slippers in anticpation of her heart surgery was just plain hard.  In the midst of the craziness of running around today the truth is, I have a very sick little girl and all of those little pajamas reminded me of what all the running around is really for.  Stop.  Deep breath.  Pray.  Yes, the Fontan is here and the Lord will be with us.  OK, I can go on.

What a super busy crazy day (and a tad bit emotional too)!  Brian is trying to get things wrapped up with his work.  The kids and Miss. Lauren and I are heading out Wednesday morning.  Brian is going to follow later in the day once he gets things in order with his work.

Tomorrow is going to be another big busy day for us and we head to Charleston and get settled.

I do have to say that throughout the day today so many friends and family have called me or sent me notes or dropped goody bags by our house today - just to tell us that they love us and are praying for us.  It has meant so much to all of us to know that we are surround by people who love and support us and are so faithfully praying for Anna Grace.  We are so grateful to each of you!  I am not an eloquent enough writer to express how much these things mean to us.  To each of you I just want you to know that we sincerely thank you and we appreciate you thinking of us and loving on our family.

Since we will be on the road a good bit tomorrow I might not update tomorrow night, but I plan to on Thursday for sure.  Thank you friends for continuing to follow our story!

Tina, my heart is full of love and prayers for your family. I just wrote out a post card to Zachary telling him that we miss him in class, but know he'll be back. I also told him we are praying for him and his family. That prompted me to read your blog and I'm glad I did so I can pray specifically as you all travel and get settled today. Love, hugs and prayers, Susan and family
