It's been four months!! This post is kinda late because his month mark was on Sunday, but better late than never right? Haha I cannot believe how fast time is flying. When people ask me how long he has been gone and I say four month, they are like "Oh, so not that long ago." But in my mind I am like, "Whoa! He has already been gone FOUR MONTHS??!?! It seems like he just left!" Which is a good thing :] My mom just sent off my Christmas package for him like a week ago as well. (My mom did it because I didn't have time) I hope he likes it.... I put in two ties, a leather planner cover, and a bag of miniature reeses.
I got a letter on Monday, it had been like 3 weeks since my last one. He wrote it on Halloween!! Which means it took like almost a month to get to me. WHY CANADA POSTAL SERVICE WHY?!?! Anyways, in the beginning of the letter he told me that he was sorry that he hadn't kept his promise in a while of writing me every week, so he has a surprise for me and to be prepared. I don't know whether to be excited or scared!! I have no idea what it could be because that is all he said about it! Suspense much?! It was only two pages (the shortest yet) but I loved EVERY WORD. :]
Today is Thanksgiving, and I am gonna get to see my Grandma and Grandpa on my dad's side and my Grandma on my mom's side. (My mom's parents are divorced and we never see my Grandpa. It's been like 6 or 7 years) I am so grateful for my family and everything they do. I would not be the person today if it was not for my family and friends. I am thankful that my missionary has come into my life and am proud that he made the decision to serve a mission. I am thankful that I have him as a best friend and that someday, I will marry him. I am grateful that I have the talents that I do and can share them with others. I am thankful that the Lord has blessed me with such awesome roommates this year who are helping me get through the next 2 years and will be my friends for life. Sometimes I complain, but honestly I love my life and wouldn't trade it for anything.
