In the Blink of an Eye

I don't have too much stuff. I don't have enough stuff lol! Yes, I am very aware that when I get home I will have to go through all my old junk. I'm glad I still have my old soccer shoes so that I can play in the alumni game when I get there. I cant believe that it will be 4 years total till I see Ben. Everyone is going to be so different. Well that's good I guess. Change may be hard but it is always good. Now I'm not saying I'm a different person. I am still me, just with a deeper love of God and people. I think that's been the biggest blessing to me on my mission is that I have grown a desire to help people instead of hoping someone helps them, if that makes sense. 
How are the kids doing? I am super excited to get to see them and do things with them. It will be fun when they visit, to take them to do whatever and you would be able to relax more when we do. I am also down to go to FREE concerts. The only thing that would turn me away is if I HAD to pay. This last week a few missionaries from the Ogden mission who are going to school now in Rexburg, came down and took me out to lunch. It was so weird seeing them after not having seen them for so long and seeing them in regular clothes on a non p-day day. It was a blast. So I understand what you mean when its hard for missionaries to go away. Its also great if you do get to see them again in like I don't know maybe... 15 DAYS!! But seriously, I'm not sure if anything really exciting will happen in 15 days, it will probably be just another day... just kidding. I love you so much. I also cant wait to see you again. Time is just slipping away and I'm afraid that this last little bit will be gone in a blink of an eye. I know that the people I have met have been forever engraved upon my heart. It will be so hard to leave them knowing that it will be a long time before I will see many of them again. I wish Shaun and Ryan had told me how hard this part was. It seems convenient that they just "happened" to forget that detail as they worked on convincing me to go on a mission. I am grateful for them though. I give them, especially the Findlay family, much credit getting me here. Granna and Grandpa too! Of coarse the main person I give credit to is you. Your love and support through hard times really pushed and motivated me to be a better person than I was and to do something with my life instead of kinda just fartin around life. Here is you scripture challenge. (I know I haven't done this much but oh well) What is the first question asked in the Book of Mormon? Here is your hint. It will be between 1 Nephi chapter 1 and 1 Nephi  Chapter 7.I love you so much.
