About two years ago or so, Braaten hoped that she would be able to save enough money to pay for a ticket to England. She had a strong desire to be able to go back to the place where we invested almost two years of our lives through a work opportunity for my husband. When she said it, I was really proud of her for wanting to step out of her comfort zone.
You see, prior to that, Braaten couldn't wait to move back home and get back to life as we once knew it. She realized that some of the friendships she made there were irreplaceable and priceless; that building friendship requires commitment and spending time together.
So today is her big day. This is the day that she will board a plane alone, but with an airline chaperone, to fly 7-8 hours across the pond to reconnect with some of our beloved friends.
My husband and I are stepping out in faith, trusting that Jesus has this all taken care of. We trust that she is in His loving care. And with that, we know that this will be one of the greatest adventures she'll ever take part in.
Have fun, Bray! We'll be counting down the next 19 days. I love you with all my heart.
