Here we go...

The day she has long awaited is finally here.

In Mya's own words, "As the days got closer (to leaving for Zambia), I got nervouser and excited. I couldn't wait to hug Aunt Leslie and play with the things in my backpack."

She has been ready to get on the plane for weeks and the day is finally here.

Today Mya and I leave for Africa, Zambia to be specific, to visit my sister and the Lifesong school.

We are expecting to have a great adventure.

I have a few other expectations for our trip as well:

I am expecting to spend some quality time with my sister whom I miss,
to tour the Lifesong school and learn more about how God is working there,
to have lots and lots (like a 15-hour plane ride lots) of mother-daughter bonding time,
for a life-changing experience that shapes my daughter's perspective for life.

There are others, but I'll stop here.

I don't know if my expectations are too high, or too low.

Regardless, its time to set expectation aside and start living this adventure.

Here we go!
