Yesterday I did something that I’ve only done one other time in my life as a parent for the last 6+ years… I left all my kids and husband and boarded an airplane and flew to another state. The last time this occurred I went to a Midwifery Volunteerism in Developing Countries seminar in Taos, NM. This time, I’m in Boise, Idaho for a 6-day intensive midwifery study retreat just prior to my all-encompassing-I-really-pray-I-pass board exams for my midwifery licensure. While here life is 100% midwifery…talking, eating, sleeping, studying and probably at some point in time, banging my head on the table, all for the love of women and babies and prayerfully, in order so I can do a little something to help save lives in Madagascar. If you remember to, please pray for me during this week. And pray for my awesome husband who is caring for our own three little ones back home.
