Giving Thanks: Day 9 {My Mission}


You know I was going thoug pictures of my mission this evening with Kris and so many memories came flooding back. People I love places I lived, experiences I had good and bad, but the thing that stood out most was how much I learned. I learned more about myself than I ever have before, what I want what I believe how to make a stand, how to stick up for myself. I have always known that church was true, I have never doubted even when my decisions didn't prove that, but my mission taught me what I want out of life, I want the eternal prize everlasting life. I feel for me I would never be the person that I am with out my mission what a guiding light it has been in my life! I am thankful for the up's and down's and everything in between that I experienced on my mission how blessed I feel that I had this opportunity!

I'm grateful for the mission too! Your photo gives me flashbacks and now I want to go through all of my old mission photos!

I'm so glad that you, me, AND Mike all got to serve in the same mission. What a blessing missions are--so life changing!

Have I told you yet how neat it is that you are doing this? It really is amazing. I've loved reading about everything you're grateful for. It has definitely helped me think about the things in my life that I am most grateful for, which I certainly wouldn't be doing if I didn't have your blog to constantly remind me to be thankful. So thank you!
