I received the neatest email this morning! It was short and sweet and yet at the same time gave me God-bumps upon God-bumps and brought a huge smile to my face!
Last month I met a new friend who lives in Orlando, FL. Next month, my sweet niece and I are boarding a plane…destination everything Disney! I hadn’t planned on taking her this year but an amazing deal came my way and sadly for a 7yo, she’s had a tough fall and she needs a break. What better place than Disney and who else but her aunt who is a complete Disney freak to take her? (This is our 3rd trip in as many years so you’ve guessed it – I’ve passed my love onto the next generation! Yeah!!) So yes, we head off in a few short weeks to the land of everything happy, make believe and where Rebecca’s on a first name basis with the Mouse himself! After all, he and Cinderella have both sent her post cards personally ;o) so they must know her name!
Anyway, back to the original story. My friend and I have been trying desperately to figure out how we can get together while Rebecca and I are visiting the sunny south. I tried to change 3 different dinner reservations from 2 people to 4 but with the huge success of the Disney Dining Plan (a great program!) we’ve been unable to do so. So, what we’ve worked out is that the night R and I are dining with Cinderella, my friend and her granddaughter are going to meet us at the Grand Floridian and after touring the beauty there, will head back to our resort for the girls to swim.
My friend mentioned these plans to her granddaughter last night and this was her response.
‘Is her niece Chinese?’
Can you imagine?!!! She’s never met me nor even heard of me yet that was her question! Too cool!
I love it when that happens! I see things like this as God’s way of reminding me that He is in control and in His timing He will bring Hannah and I together. Ahhh…peace! What a wonderful feeling…God’s peace!
