“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.”
“Why is patience so important?” “Because it makes us pay attention.”
Whoever Paulo Coelho is, he was correct. This has been such a hard week. Actually since the day I turned in my mission papers my patience has been on end. I know that it will come and I’ll be going on my mission before I know it but with each passing day I get kind of sad knowing that it’s not here yet. I turned in my papers in November and it’s now almost February. I thought I’d get my letter before my birthday and I’m really hoping that I do seeing as my birthday is in a week and two days. This wait is killing me. And the thing that makes it worse is certain people keep saying that I won’t get it and if I do they’re gonna hide it so I can’t go. And they keep telling me that I can do more important things with the money I have saved for my mission. I don’t want to do anything else with my money and I know that I’m going on a mission. It’s what I’m meant to do. I know it and my Heavenly Father knows it. That’s all that’s really important. At least I know I do have support in other places. So many people at church are there, hoping I get my call soon. They are just as excited as me! One of them is like a second grandmother to me. She has been there for everything, even my high school graduation! I love her and her husband so much and when I go to the temple, she will be there with me and nothing makes me happier. She is one woman who has made me who I am today and I wouldn’t have made it this far without her. It also makes me so happy that so many people are making guesses as to where I’m going. I have a thing going on that whoever is correct will get yummy cookies baked by me. I have so many guesses to places all over the world from Washington to Korea. Hmm…well, the day will soon come where I will be sitting in my cousin’s living room surrounded by a few of my awesome friends and family to open my letter and find out when and where I’m going. Perhaps that day will be tomorrow? We never know. Anyone here wanna guess as to where I’m going?
