Snowy Drive

This was our van this morning:


We also woke with a pinker baby than usual, so that gave us more peace for today’s travels. We know people are already praying! We can feel it!


Mary is feeling much better this morning, too, so we are relieved for her as well.


The kids were very excited to have a breakfast feast! They all had both apple and orange juice! They also had yogurt, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, a doughnut, and waffles! I love these crazy kids!



As per their own invented tradition, they sang a song for the other guests after they finished eating.


An elderly couple chased them down on the elevator and gave them each a dollar for their song!

They were delighted, and quickly offered to sing more songs! It was pretty funny. I am glad they felt proud of themselves.

We are exactly four hours ahead of the ice coming behind us, so we have to stay on top of quick bathroom breaks. I am glad our lunches are already packed.  If we had not heeded the prompting to leave last night, even though it was late and we were tired, we would have been caught in the winter storms today.  We take a slow and careful drive today, and are grateful for Heavenly Father’s protection and the many prayers that cover us!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
