Joy and Sorrow

I woke up this morning and realized that because of Daylight Savings, we are actually one hour closer to our daughter!

I also woke up thinking about the people of Japan.  While we prepare to bring our daughter home, so many have lost children in the horrors of the tsunami.

It's joy mixed with sorrow.  The devastation fills my mind.

And yet, we continue to prepare.  We are now T minus-48 hours.  A trip to Costco, a birthday dinner for Patrick, final touches on packing, some mending (and perhaps even finishing Rose's quilt?), and cleaning the house.  We have a VIP house-sitting for us. 

Throughout it all, I will be sending prayers to the people of Japan.

I can't believe that you are just days away now!!! It is so wonderful that Vu will be able to see his nannies and friends in Vietnam, and even more amazing that your whole family will be there to meet and welcome Rose to your family! We will be thinking of you and praying for you throughout your trip. Please keep us all posted as often as you can! We can't wait to see pictures!!!

We are also praying for those in Japan. :-( It is devastating.
