I was so blessed to open an e-mail this afternoon containing ticket confirmation to Shanghai for February 24th. Can it be true? It is a little strange that they are choosing to fly us north to Vancouver BC (during the Olympics no less) then fly us to Shanghai. But, at this point, I am just happy to have a concrete date, or so I think.
Another little blessing is that our orange tree is finally giving us some fabulously sweet oranges. Ok, so that sounds inconsequential. But, one of the things we love most about living in our house is enjoying two months of fresh and free oranges. So, yes, I am happy about both of these blessings. Jameson is also happy, as he loves oranges almost as much as he loves his daddy. In fact that is the first thing he asks for when his daddy comes home! "Daddy! orange?"
It has been a challenging few months and I will admit that this journey has already challenged our sanity and even our marriage. But, ultimately, our faith is in a heavenly father who cares for us. So, the answer to my question of “orange you glad” is “I am glad indeed!"
