At the last Shindig we met a family who owns an organic produce farm in Colorado. They got to know Miles and offered him a full time internship all summer, actually a total of 5 months!!! We were torn. It seemed like a great opportunity but so far away from us!
After praying on it, and having multiple conversations with the family, we decided that Miles should take that opportunity. He would learn some great skills, work hard, and learn to relate to other people unlike those that live in our small community.
We packed our things and headed out on the road towards Colorado...
They are the sweetest family. We could not be more thankful for how God provided a very close knit family for our son to be a part of. He fit right in the second he stepped foot on the farm and they seemed to take him in as one of their very own.
Mark and I had to press on. We had to keep traveling West toward Las Vegas. We planned our trip around our Vegas convention. Originally we had planned to fly out there but since Miles was taking that job in Colorado, we figured we would drive so that we could drop him off ourselves and see where he will be working!
I must say, the drive was amazing! Especially UTAH! Every time you look out the window, it gets prettier, more colorful, and you just praise God for his marvelous creation. Wow!
It was fun getting dressed up together and seeing so many of our friends there.
I am so thankful. I was able to make that long trip across the country. I thank God for being pain free. And so thankful that my foot was not throbbing. You think of these things when you hit a new milestone. It all seems like the first time all over again! It was so fun to dress up and put on pretty shoes and feel like a normal person again. I can go on adventures and live life. God is so good! On our way home, I got to see Hoover Dam with my sweetie pie. What a precious gift to share, the gift of life and adventure. We are just having such a great time doing all the things we could not do when we were so sick! It is kind of like coming out of a dark cave into the light!
