So guess what? I'm going on a mission! I might've mentioned it before, but there you have it! It's been a long time coming. And let me tell you a little something.
So I finally, FINALLY had my papers in and was waiting
My Uncle Bruce ended up hanging out by the mailbox with his lunch, and I'm pretty sure he was more anxious than me! I didn't open it till 8:30 so some other people could come.
Okay, okay, before I tell you where I'm going (IF YOU DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW BECAUSE THAT WAS LIKE 3 WEEKS AGO) I have to tell you this.
You know when people ask you where you want to go on your mission, and you're supposed to say, "Well, I don't care. I'll go where I'm supposed to!"
So I would always say, "Well I don't care . . . as long as it's foreign . . ."
I was so nervous, you guys. What if I went somewhere state-side? It would be so lame! And I kept telling Heavenly Father, "You know, I'll go where you want me to go . . . but you know I can handle foreign, right? Right??"
Alright. So I was about to
I'm going to Oklahoma City, everyone!
And as I read those words, I have to tell you, I didn't even have half a second to be disappointed. The Spirit testified to me that Oklahoma is exactly where I need to be. And I could hardly read it, I was crying so much.
AND THEN I READ THAT I WOULD BE LEAVING ON AUGUST 7th AND HOOOLLLY COW. That's so soon! But it still seemed so far away . . .
AND HERE I AM WITH NO MISSION ANYTHING and it's 3 weeks away!
I can't even handle this.
I'm so excited I could die.
BUT I WON'T SO DON'T EVEN WORRY.
p.s. OK? Gettit? Like . . . Oklahoma?
