Welp. Time flies. And apparently accelerates expodentially.
Lets see. I got pretty sick these last couple days. But that is pretty normal. It is actually so normal that when people here say "stomach ache" they actually mean "diarrhea". I know it is gross to say, but I can't let this one go: I had eaten, among other things, a ton of eggplant that is like florescent purple, and that resulted in seeing every color of the rainbow (except for blue) in the toilet over the course of 48 hours. Fun times. But I am mostly better now. My intestines are just tired.
uhhh, yesterday I saw something pretty cool. It was a blind couple that was on a date and trying to get on a city bus. They were having a blast even though they were having tons of difficulties and what not. It just made me realize that life is what you make it. They were having way more fun than me at the moment when I saw them and I technically have more reasons to smile than they do, but I was choosing not to smile and think about my "stomach ache" and they were choosing to smile. So they win. LESSON LEARNED.
what else... I really appreciate everyone who writes me. Especially grandma velma. She is a boss. I was thinking the other day how I want to be a grandparent like her when I get older. I think I have like 100 million letters from her in my suitcase, and they are all way personal and come with cool stickers and 5 dollar bills. It makes me feel really special. so I just thought I should give her a thank-you. THANK-YOU GRANDMA!!! YOU ARE THE COOLEST!!! I LOVE YOU!!! hopefully I yelled that loud enough for her to hear. (joke: I am using email, I don't have to yell)
yep. Everyone (including my belt) keeps telling me I am getting way skinny. That tells me it is time to take some anti-worm medication. I'll see what I can do...
We had a baptism yesterday. It was that lady that I was talking about that turned her whole life around. Way special. I was happy and a half. Plus it was the first time ever that my companion got to actually baptize somebody. So that is cool. Hopefully we'll have one this week too. for now it seems like everything is all set and ready to go, but you never know. We are getting way blessed here so thanks for all of your prayers.
less than 2 months now. I hope I don't waste one second. Getting sick was super frustrating because I had to go home and try to sleep it off last night. Luckily that worked and now I can crank out a super good week. A member of the church sent us a text this morning at 6:35 saying that she met a person who wants our visits. So hopefully that works out.
But that is it. I love you all and I'll see you all soon.
