So yesterday was his FIVE MONTH MARK!!! Yup!!! :] My baby has been out for five months already :] I can't believe it! One more and we have hit 6. Which is 1/4 of his mission. For some reason, the 6 month mark just seems like it will be a HUGE accomplishment.
On Monday, my dad comes in and wakes me up and tells me I have a letter!! I was so excited :] I tore it open (no seriously I like massacred the dang thing) And let me tell you. I needed that letter. It was the best letter EVER! Oh my gosh. Every time I get a letter from that boy I am reminded of why I am waiting and why I put up with all the crap from people. He. Loves. Me. A lot. Ha :] ALMOST as much as I love him ;] (But don't tell him I said that) He is the sweetest, kindest, most talented and loving person I have ever met. (Plus a lot of other mushy romantic words that I can't think of right now). In essence, he's perfect. To me anyways. But why does anyone else matter? :]
A fellow MG of mine has been making these photos of girls and their missionaries. She takes a photo of the girl and a photo of the missionary and puts them in one photo! So here is mine :] I like it because my boy is such a dork :] Oh, and that is the temple in the background as well :]
Then I wanted to add my own flavor to it so I put this on there ha.
Growing up, I always knew what missionaries were but didn't really understand them. As I got older, I heard stories of girls waiting for missionaries as they were out and some of them making it, and some of them not. Did I EVER think that I was going to be one of those girls waiting two years for some boy? NOPE. Not until I met my mish. Then I was hooked from there.
There are so many people out there that think girls who wait for missionaries are stupid and immature. They say two years is a long time and we will grow apart. This could be true, but it also could not. For all of you out there that think I am out of my mind, do you want to know what I am waiting for? Have you ever seen those chick flicks where the couple gets together in the end and they are just so HAPPY?! You were rooting for them the whole time even though EVERYTHING and EVERYONE was against them, you knew that in the end they would make it. Well, that is me. I want to see him come home, way more spiritually high than he was (which is hard to beat) and run into those welcoming arms of his and feel safe again. I know this may not happen, but what is so wrong with a dream? Everyone has a dream. Some are more realistic than others, but still a dream none the less.
If you are one of those people who are what we MG's like to call "waiter haters", maybe think before you say something next time. Do you have someone coming up to you and telling you that you will NEVER be happy and the one you love won't ever love you back? I have seen missionary reunions gone wrong, but I have also seen them be some of the most amazing, beautiful, happy moments. I won't know for about 585 more days if I will have one of these magical moments. But until then, this dream is all I have left to cling to.
Someday I will get married in the temple to the love of my life, and start a family. It could be with Elder Cuddle Buns, or it could be someone who I haven't met yet. But honestly, what matters is that I am happy. What I know right now, is that when I am with my mish, I am the happiest I have ever been. I love him.
So remember how I said I was going to try and post more often? Ya obviously that hasn't happened... I have been WAY busy lately. Haven't had a break for like the past 2 weeks. I have either been at rehearsal or performances. KILL ME. Ha. But thankfully, schools almost out! Yay! I am 2 finals away from freedom! :]
Our performances this past week actually went REALLY well. I had an asthma attack right before aerial BOTH nights but thankfully didn't fall or get caught in the fabric. I'M ALIVE!! :] Now only one more performance of Christmas Tapestry tonight and no more performances until next semester.
It has been like 3 or 4 weeks since my last letter from my mish but I know he is just busy. Which is a good thing :] Lately I have had some friends with boys coming home and it hasn't been working out. And Satan keeps trying to show me things and tell me things that will make me doubt myself in waiting. However, Heavenly Father has a good comeback ;] He keeps showing me reasons why I am waiting. Some ladies in my home ward talked about their missionaries that are out and read some of their emails. I knew both of them and they have grown SO MUCH spiritually. I can't wait to see how much better my mish will be when he gets back :] He was so strong before and I just know God is going to mold him into something even more amazing. Plus, I believe me and Elder Cuddle Buns together is something that Satan is VERY scared about and SHOULD BE!
