Me: "Yes I was calling because I realized that I forgot to put postage on a return envelope that contains a VERY IMPORTANT document that we need to meet a deadline for an adoption....." (on and on I went without a breath, which must have annoyed this lady)
Lady: "Ma'am people forget postage all the time, it was mailed out to you Friday."
Me: "Oh so you just put the postage on it? Can I send you a check to cover the $2.00?"
Lady: "No ma'am we took care of it."
Me: "Thank you so much, I really really appreciate it."
So when Shawn went to pick up the package he realized there was no postage. There was not even a stamp with the a post-mark date! We have no idea how it got here at all, but now we know why it was late.
So then Shawn went to Pack and Ship to decide if we should send it through Fed Ex or UPS. The lady there was really kind and thought that Fed Ex would be the way to go. She said there were no delays from what she could tell. Well right now our package is in Memphis Tenessee. The top of our tracking page says:
"Severe winter weather conditions at Memphis hub may cause some
service delays and disruptions within the U.S. today."
Let's hope that this is not the case as it needs to be there by Tuesday. It is showing that it has not left Memphis, which it probably should have by now. Prayers are needed for God to put a hand on this package and get it into our facilitators hands by Tuesday. Prayers also needed for us if that is not God's plan :) We are trying to sit back and trust in the Lord that he will get the package there in the perfect time (whatever that may be). We are trying to let go of our time frame and remember we can't see everything that God does...we know his plan is best, but it's still difficult. There is nothing else we can do so worrying is wasted energy at this point. We will get to Zoya, it may just be a few weeks later than what we hoped for :(
