Day 8 and Day 9...Playing Catch Up

We spent the weekend at the farm, and that means cows instead of internet access!  So, I'll be playing a little catch up for the next couple of days. 

Day 8: A Place You've Traveled To

When I was growing up we had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places.  We stated traveling to English speaking places like Kauai and Australia, and then traveled to some more exotic locations.  All of this travel lit a fire in me, and if I could I would travel a lot, especially internationally. (Aunt Susan if you need a traveling partner, please let me know!)  One of my favorite locations was Venice.  The buildings, the history and the food were all amazing.  We walked and walked though the winding streets, ate gelato, and rode the gondolas.  Of all the places we've traveled, I've love to go back to Venice and see if it is as amazing as I remember.

Day 9:  Your Favorite Quote Verse

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

When I was pregnant with Claire and struggling with her heart condition and the near certainty of Down syndrome my dad send me this verse, and it really spoke to me.  Whenever I was having an especially bad day this is the verse that I would repeat over and over.  It ran through my head constantly during my c-section, and has been a comfort to me on many bad days since.
