Mixed Emotions

Today was a great day! We started it off by going to our friends children's home to play with and hold babies. Any of you who know me well, will know how much I love this. Then in the afternoon everyone from our children's home had a despedida (going away party) for us. They made a special lunch, one of Tyler's favourites. When the meal was done different kids and some of the adults said some very kind words of appreciation to us. They finished the afternoon by praying for us and our family. It added to the mixed emotions that we feel when leaving here. We love visiting with family and friends in Canada, but this is our home now and we love and are loved by so many here. We need the time to refresh and share with others, so it is a good thing and I know we will enjoy it, but we will also be missing some very special people in our lives.

As an added surprise mu friend Isabel along with her husband and 4 of her children came to say good bye to us and brought me a cake for my birthday that is coming up. We had a great visit with them. We will really miss them. Their second youngest daughter will turn 3 on Wednesday, it was fun to go out and find a baby doll for her. She loves dolls and spent the entire visit playing with her baby.

So, we have less that 48 hours before we head to the airport. It won`t be long now and we will be where it is nearly 40 degrees colder!!!
