waiting: Africa



While at the St. Louis zoo I got this beautiful handmade journal. (It's actually made from elephant poop, how cool is that?!?)

I've decided to open it when I'm on the plane to Africa.
But that is in 3 years or more.

Right now all I can do is wait.
and pray.
and learn as much as I can.

So I'm gonna do that! I'm gonna do everything I can to grow closer to Jesus and learn about midwifery, Africa, learn languages, etc. I'm officially learning French with the awesome Duolingo and I'm on level 3!! IT. IS. SO. AWESOME!! And I'm learning a lot!! When I get pretty far into it I want to start Spanish, and then Swahili. I'm literally so pumped about this and am sooo happy!!
I'm learning infant disease/genetic diseases that can be passed on. There's some interesting stuff! Also a lot of other stuff! =D I already have a midwife that says she will take me at 16, and I'm really excited about that too!
But of course if it's the Lord's will. I know it is the most important thing to keep Him in the center, things will go best like that, even if I don't think  so. ➴➵➶

So yep. That's it. Just sharing thoughts on what I'd love my future to be!!

    Do you have any prayer requests?
    What do you want to be when you're older?? =DD

    That's so exciting Paige!! I'll be praying that everything goes well! :-)
    I want to be a singer when I grow up, but I think you might already know that. :-)
    That's such a cool journal! I think it's neat that you're going to wait to open it until you go to Africa! Then you have something else to look forward to other than the fact that OHMYGOODNESS YOU ARE LITERALLY GOING TO AFRICA. I bet you are super excited for when that day finally comes, huh? :-)

      Isn't it? Yeah, I wanted to be able to write something really special in it and it only seemed right to decide that. ♡
      Uh YEAH!!!!!! it seems like such a long ways off, but I know it'll be worth it and I know it is all God's plan. =DD

  2. That is amazing! I wish you the best of luck and I will be praying for you as you go on this journey!!
    I want to be a homeschool mom, it's not as big as being a midwife, but it's still an important job! :)

    1. I'm glad you think so! <3 thank you so much!
      Girl, that's so awesome and bigger than a midwife. Being a mom is the best job in the world! But I love it that you can be mom and a midwife. <3

  5. This post was so super cool....and so was that journal!! It's so fascinating that it was made from elephant poop....xD
    God is really proud of you for striving to be a midwife in Africa right now. ;) I just know it. <333
    What do I want to be when I grow up? Well, I'd like to be a mom, or nurse, or run a daycare. ;)
    Well, I hope you have an amazing day, girl!! <33

    1. Haha yeah!
      Awe thanks girl! ♡
      That's what I wanted to be too, before I new more about midwifery. That's super cool! Daycare would be SO. MUCH. FUN!!
      lol, not really. Ugh, I feel SO bad because I don't even have it filmed yet. I've tried 5 times and answered all 100 questions 5 times but something always went wrong and I would end up despising the video. But hopefully a short little one will be coming soon!

  6. Your welcome! <333
    That's so cool!!!!! =D *wink wink*
    IKR!? I always dreamed that I'd be able to do that one day.....and, actually, our neighbor across the street owns a day care, so there are little kids over there all the time- they're all so cute!!!
    I'm sure that's quite fustrationing to you, I'm sorry. I can't wait to see it when it's done, though!!
    YAAAYYAYAY!!!! I hope so!!!!!!!! =DDD *is very hopeful*

      Oh cool! I'm gonna go help a mom with 5 kids (one is 3 weeks old=D) with cleaning, cooking, the children, and holding the baby for the mom to take a break. I'm sooooo excited! ♡ I'll post about it when I get back. (It'll be June 23 through July 1st.)
      It's okay. Yah
      Yup! ♡♡♡

    2. *is jealous of you* lucky!! =D My Mom used to run a home daycare, but then, when we found out Elaina was on the way, we stopped, so mom could rest, and take a break. ;) But, what you're doing sounds really exciting!!!!! ;)
      OOH! I'll be looking out for that post, then. ;)
      YAAAAAAYYAYAYAYY!!!!!! I cannot WAIT to see it. =)

  8. Wow that journal is crazy cool!! That's pretty awesome.
    AWW so excited for you!!! Being a midwife sounds so rad and you will be SO good at it. You have such a caring heart.
    I'm not sure what I want to be when I grow up . . . I like the idea of doing something to do with psycology or maybe being a writer. But really I just want to be a stay at home mom with lots of little cuties and an amazing husband!! I have also thought about being a piano teacher and/or majoring in music. :D
