My daughter, Nichelle celebrates her 20th birthday today. This is the first year she's had a birthday and not been home with us. She's on a missionary trip with Youth With A Mission and won't be home until mid-November. Right now she should be backpacking through the jungles and villages of Indonesia. Of course, it's a day ahead of us there, so her birthday has already come and gone. She's with a great group of people, so I hope she had a nice birthday. I also hope she can check in with us soon, since we haven't heard from her since they left Thailand. We knew communications would be scarce, especially now that she's on the most intense part of her mission. Considering they went to the island just days after a major earthquake, I've been a little more than freaked out. I know what she's doing is important, and I know she's having a good time, but I'm still anxious for her to come back home. I can't believe my firstborn is 20 years old!
Happy Birthday, Nichelle!
