Random Updates of the Not-so-Random

November 30, 2010

Hi there...it's been a few weeks since I posted and much has changed. My husband and I moved to California from Galati, Romania and are now in the middle of processing the shift in our lives. We've been taking it slow, taking it easy, and just trying to rest. Here are a few updates...

~~As of yesterday, we've been in the states for 3 weeks. Leaving Romania was more difficult that I'd ever imagined. We are missing our family there, the sweet faces of the little ones we worked with at the center, and even just the rhythm of our days in Galati. So much to become accustomed to here, especially for my husband, Bela, who is living in the states for the first time.

~~The weather in California (southern) couldn't be more beautiful.

(These are views from my parent's yard of the San Bernardino Mountains and their orange tree...which Bela loves. Now, he could only find the elusive lime tree in their yard...)

~~I'm 24 weeks pregnant. Trying to figure out a name. Imagining what she'll look like. Longing to hold her...even at 2, 4, and 6 a.m. Feeling her move around more and more. Continually amazed at this unimaginable gift.

~~Last Saturday we went to Chinatown in L.A. with the Browns and ate Dim Sum.

~~We spent Thanksgiving with family in Long Beach and laughed. A lot.

~~Have not quite had my fill of Mexican food.

~~Learning that when He said He is always with us, He meant it. Trusting that He is indeed our Deliverer...that He wants to save us.

~~Thinking that I'll wait before I do anymore with the "If You Have the Time Fridays- short story share..." It seems that I don't quite have the time right now.

~~My sister Elisabeth is visiting from Portland this week with her family. Can't wait to see them.

~~That's it for now...but I'm here and hoping to begin posting once again...

Hello, I am blog surfing and saw the picture of the San Bernardino mountains and immediately recognized them. We live very close to them ourselves. So did the Lord tell you what language to use when you pray? He knows all so use what you are comfortable with. Stop in to visit me when you have time.. (:
