Man. Man man. This has been a good week. It’s happy that I can always find something exciting to write about. There were 3 big things that happened this week:
1- This week we went on splits to Odense, probably for my last time. Super sad (unless I end up transferring there). Odense is a great place. It’s always super great to be on splits with Sister Landvatter. She is one of the best advice givers ever. It helps that we both are able to help each other out because we’re both in the same boat. It was kind of a funky splits because Sister Landvatter and Sister Bevan, along with Elder and Sister Turpin, ran a 5k Thursday morning! They held one in honor of a lovely holiday called Kristi Himmelfarts Dag, or Ascention Day, as it is called in English. It was super fun. Sister Hughes and I were the official cheerleaders/photographers of our group (Because we don’t really run, at least not long distances. Sister Bevan has been getting me out running every once in a while though).
2- SUMMER IS HEEEEEERE! We actually didn’t have like any spring, it was just super cold, then BAM! Lose the jacket, tights, anything that might hold you down from the SUUUUNSHIIIINE!! I’ve missed this. it’s really funny how the weather really does effect your mood. Esbjerg is a completely different place. Too bad I might be leaving soon…. Not going to jinx it.
3- I got to talk to my wonderful, incredible, fantastic, amazing family yesterday!! It was super emotional. It was the last time I do it before I go home in… 1.5 months… My sister was not making it any better by telling me exactly how many days until I come home. It was so good. I love my family so much. And I love my mom! I’m pretty sure my mom is better than your mom.
Well. It has been an excellent week. I hope the sunshine/warm stays. You can never fully trust the Danish weather though. Cross your fingers.
Have a great week!
I forgot my planner at home with all my quotes. So sad. Let’s see if I can remember any.
Abby: “I didn’t say anything about living in China on my mission papers. I don’t want to come anywhere near here on my mission.”
Me: “It’s not like God doesn’t know.”
Abby: “God can keep a secret.”
So the other day in my morning prayers I should have gotten up and gone to the bathroom or done some jumping jacks or something before I prayed, but I didn’t. I apologized to God beforehand if I said anything strange. This was all I could remember from the few times my mind wandered. I literally said this in my prayer: “…and you know how you get a street named after you? You do good things and be a good example.” I think I die every time I even think about that experience.
…can’t think of any others. You’ll get them next week. Sorry.
