So with both girls sick they do nothing but cry, not that is different than anything that they normally do, but it's getting old.
Me... well I have been thinking a lot about my mom and dad...
Last week we got a visit from my parents and to make a very long amazing story short... They will be leaving for 3 years to serve a mission in the NAGOYA, JAPAN Mission. I'm so thrilled for them and can't wait to visit, but I have been crying at the drop of a hat all week. What will I do with out them for 3 years, all that they will miss. I know they are not dead but Japan is a long way away and where they won't be able to leave... see I'm crying again! I will just really miss them. I will miss having a place to go to get a way and feel like I can drop my stuff and be home away form home. I will also miss my little sisters so much... see here we go even more. Kat and Whit are so much fun and my buddies! I will miss them. Whit will be submitting mission papers for herself in Sept, she is able to go a year earlier than normal. Who will I call when my kids are sick in the middle of the night with croup? Or help me with my projects that I start and get in Way over my head. All of those little things that you do with a mom. Who will be my sounding ear and bring me back to reality or help me with talks or lessons, who will be the one to listen without judging (and lets be honest it's me, a little crazy and out there) and then calmly express heartfelt feelings of comfort for what I'm feeling and then wise council like my dad.
I really am thrilled and I know that we will do skype and keep in touch and go visit them, but I'm still a little apprehensive about it. All that put aside. I know that they both will be amazing! They have prepared their whole lives for this and I know that like Elder Hales told my dad "Ever thing you have done, every call you have had, every client you have worked with have all been preparing you for this!" I know with all my heart that we will be taken care of and watched over and feel those real blessings. I have a deep and true testimony of that. I will just really miss them! I love you both!
