See you in August

Also known as: One step closer to World Youth Day in Madrid :)

I told you I’d have a reason to blog more. :)

Last night I was very, very antsy because our WYD group leader sent a message to pray for our visas which was to be released today. Last June, I was already majorly antsy about it because it was the scheduled group appointment, where our leader represented us to the embassy. I had a good feeling that we’d get the visa, but who knows, right? After the appointment, I thought we’d know already, but it turns out it won’t be until July 15.

So the waiting starts. And I pretty much put it at the back of my mind, even if I’ve been praying for it everyday. When that text message came last night to pray for 100% approval, I was worried again.

I mean, I know I have all documents submitted…but who knows right? Anything could still go wrong.

But God wouldn’t let that happen, right? I’ve come this far, why take it away?

And I was given an Australian visa 3 years ago, and I was less financially capable. So why not this one, right?

Still.

And so I asked.

And then.

The message arrived.

:)

We have our visaaaa! Of course, that’s just one step closer. We still have to book our flights, prepare our itinerary, save money and pray, pray, pray! I also have to get some appointments out of the way (dentist, optometrist, and possibly pulmonologist) all in a month’s time. And train people who will back me up at work, and also buy a new camera (Lumix LX5, please?), and make sure all affairs are in order. Not to mention meet up with friends and all that before I leave. Not like I’ll be gone for a long time, anyway. It is high time I meet with my friends again.

Ahhhhh such an exciting time. It will be a busy month, but I am absolutely excited. :)
