I have been dreading this week for months. It is the week my newlywed daughter and her husband move
This most excellent couple is pursuing Scott's dream of several years, helping Peruvians grow and
develop businesses. Want to know how they'll be doing it? Visit here.
It's difficult, being excited and sad all at once. Excited because of the wonderful work they hope to do and because of all the ways God may be glorified through their efforts. Sad because I am going to miss my girl.
We go on weekend adventures together, spur each other on to achieve whatever our hopes may be, and share what God is showing us and how He is working in our lives. So often, He is leading us on parallel paths, teaching us the same lessons.
They have been packing up their lives. Choosing which few items travel to South America, what lives in Mama and Daddy's attic, and what finds a new home. My girl and I have discussed minimalism many times; she will finally be practicing it.
And so, My girl experiences her next transition, leaving a comfortable and familiar life to pursue a completely new life, learn a new language, do a new work, and live in a vastly different culture.
I'm excited, really, I am. But I can't help crying too.
