well... I tried thinking of a cooler way to start this letter but then I just couldn't think of anything. SOO im just gonna dive in. this is just a feelings letter not really an significant events happened.
im crying that Aubrey is homecoming princess.. please take videos pictures etc.. I want to see them all. tell her I love her and that I love baby so much. hahah EVERYONE keeps emailing me, past companions and they say "hey isn't baby's birthday coming up soon?" hahah they all know her!
This week was a little bit just out of the ordinary. Last Saturday my knee had this weird red circle on it.. anyways Sunday came and it was a little bit bigger, but in a perfect form of a circle.. then Monday I woke up and my knee was swollen and the circle was big. and my knee was hot.. I ignored it and then Tuesday at district meeting all the elders were like what is going on with your kneeeee you need to get it checked out. so I called the mission nurse and she told me to go to the doctor.. so we got me to the doctor that day and come to find out.. I HAVE AN INFECTION ON MY LIGAMENTS... don't worry he gave me this HUGE shot in my bum and then antibiotics.. he said if it didn't get better in 2 days I would have to go to the e.r. and get an i.v. for 24 hours.. I was like OH MY GOSH Satan seriously is working hard. SO he told me I wasn't allowed to walk for 3 days... ummm all we do is walk.. we don't have a car.. so I decided I was going to walk on it anyways it was like whatever. I got a blessing and in the blessing it said if I rested as long as I was directed the Lord would heal me. SO I changed my mind, I rested for 3 days and I was healed. I have also had 2 sessions of acupuncture work done, and I have one more just so I can get better blood flow to my knee... It was such a weird infection. I got really scared at first. Lets just say those 3 days in the house... made me do a lot of thinking. so yeah I'm overwhelmed and stressed with life. haha Not to make ANY MATTERS BETTER... I received my flight plans.. and my like "thank you for your work we allow you to go home" letter this week. I think that's when it hit me. Ive cried every night since.... hahah I'm AWESOME! my poor companion.
I was praying this whole week, tried fasting but then all 5 of our appointments FED US. so we had to fast a different day. but just so I could receive revelation as to what I should do with my life.. I'm not quite sure what I received. I think I am feeling a little overwhelmed with everything that is going on right now in my life. I have the weirdest feelings. I'm so excited to see everyone, but I am so torn apart from having to leave jersey. I don't even know what life is like not being a missionary I just like forgot. I am also INCREDIBLY humbled by my Heavenly Father for giving me the opportunity to serve Him for 18 months. How do I even describe how I feel I don't know. anyways I love everyone. lots of fun things coming up these next couple of weeks in my mission! mom I got your letter, bubba you are amazing at tennis.. baby I am dying you are such a princess, lexi.. I'm dying you went to conference. dad. Ireland.. enough said. and mom. super woman. you are all my heroes. I love you so much.
