Glorious Family, Greetings!
How are my favorite people?? It sounds like you are all doing splendid!
Thanks for sending my package. Awww baby Julian is so cute!!!!!! Thank you for the pictures. Ah all my cute girls are just growing up so fast. If you talk to them, tell them that I said congrats and that I love them ever so much 🙂
Ok so pretty much this week flew by!
Things that happened this week:
Sister T. came from St. Vincent to do tradeoffs. It was a lot of fun to have her here. I learned much.
She told me that I was the most positive person in the entire world but she was like “listen you have to tell me how you are really feeling”. Hahah ah man. I am starting to realize that I am being too positive in the fact that even when I right in my journal I hardly say what I really feel because I am trying to be happy even for myself. It’s ridiculous!! So I am starting this journal thing where I right down everything I feel. My real feelings not ones trying to talk me out of the ones that I am having. I guess times have just been hard so I have been trying to keep a float but maybe it’s a bit much.
So this Sat. we had a baptism and it was AWESOME!!!!!!! T. is such a special spirit. We were at his house for his interview and his mom told about how T. never wanted anything to do with religion or church. And even books or anything!! But said he has changed since we started meeting with him. He loves the Book of Mormon and he will come to church two hours early. She was so surprised at the way he is now 🙂 And they came to the baptism. T. was doing missionary work!! AHHHH….
I got a letter from Brother K. this week. It was amazing. He is still going strong and everything. He made me cry! It was so touching 🙂
On May 22nd I burned a pair of socks!!!! All the Elders burn a tie at their one year mark but I didn’t want to burn a skirt so I burned some holey socks!! It was awesome. I was thinking about how May 22, 2012 I graduated. May 22, 2013 I entered the MTC and now here I am hitting my year mark! WOW!!!
I am learning so very much continually everyday. Sometimes I feel a little bit weighed down. I have a lot on my plate (no pun intended) (I know I am chunkin up). But in the epic words of Bob Marley “Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright” Seriously. I testify to that. My brain has been a little scattered (Kinda like it used to be at home;) But I just need to take it slow by slow. The Lord works line upon line.
Anyway thank you everyone for the support and love that you give me. I love you all so very much 🙂
Have the best week ever!!!
Love Always, Sister Emily
