Well, I am not quite sure what to say right now haha My mind these past couple of days has been blown over and over again! When you first come out to the field, it is extremely difficult to view yourself at the last days of your mission because it seems so far away. Well, now it is here! The day after tomorrow, I will be traveling to the Mission Home to leave the following day. I have to admit that it is a crazy thing to think (even though I’ve already been through this process)! Sometimes I try to think of who I was before the mission, how I acted, the things I said. My mom always told me that she was a little sad to have me leave her for these 18 months. She said “you’re going to leave as my little girl, and come back a woman.” Mom, I can promise you that even though I left as your little girl, I am coming back different, but I will always be your little girl 🙂 you go through a lot as a missionary, and you are most definitely different at the end of your mission from when you started it. Before my mission, I was really loud and REALLY sassy, and was very musical. Now, I am still kind of loud (but I have finally found how to speak quieter), I am still sassy but I have it more controlled, and I am even more musical than before. I know that on paper it looks like I haven’t really changed at all, but the change isn’t really physical, but it is a spiritual change. I understand more of who I am. I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, and He loves me just like any father would. I know who my Savior is and why he did what he did for me. On your mission, you come to discover that while you are helping others to find God and themselves, you are doing the same for you as well. It is one of the most amazing things you can do in your life! I am so grateful for this time that I have spent here in Germany, Austria, and Germany! I will see and most of you later on this week!! Till then!
Always and Forever,
