You know the time you read my blog about how I am living my dreams of traveling and helping others who are less fortunate? The one where I was so excited to try to speak Spanish and spend a week in Bolivia?
Oh, what? You don't really read or remember my Blog posts? Oh, well, now that's embarrassing for me also.
So- those of you who DO read this Blog from time to time and were really excited for me and my adventure... we have some bad news.
We are not going after all. It is so hard to go from telling the world that I am excited to do something to turn around and say-- "well, actually...."
But as we prepared for it- something just did not feel right. I worried and prayed and tried to figure it out. I tried to rationalize the feelings and continue as planned. But the more I did that- the sicker I felt. We did not feel true peace about the whole thing until we firmly decided not to go.
We don't really know why. It is frustrating when you get a prompting and never know why. I hope that there is a reason. And I hope that it becomes clear to us. But for now- we will go with our gut and just stay home.
On the happier side-- JT did find out he is #1 on the Wait List for Rochester University. So I guess there is still the chance that someone will drop out and we will be headed off on an adventure to New York... Keep your fingers crossed. :)
(and that would be a really good reason not to go to Bolivia)
