oh mannnnnn! only a couple more days before i actually enter the MTC and become a real life missionary. EEEEEEEEK!! im nervous, excited, and real scared. ive had so much fun being at home my last month and spending time with my family. i love them so much and we are just like all best friend and i have so much fun with them. im going to miss them so much! Going through the temple was something i have never experienced and was so wonderful. im so grateful that i had the opportunity to go through with my parents and grandparents. I can truly understand why people love to go to the temple because it does bring the purest spirit to your heart and mind. I had to give my farewell talk today and i was SO NERVOUS! i dont understand why, because i know all these people and theyve watched me grown up. i talked on living prophets and hope i was able to get the message across. i wanted to incorporate a little entertainment with spirituality and something to learn in my talk. Everyone told me that it was good so i was happy about it...but more happy that it was over! my grandparents and uncles family were able to come and i was glad that i am surrounded by people who support me so much. we were able to have one last dinner as a whole family and it was so fun to play with them one last time for 18 months. i am going to miss my family and friends so much but i know this is where i am supposed to be and what i am supposed to be doing with my life at this time. i know that by having full and complete faith in the lord and his commandments that i will be blessed for my sacrifice and services. GUYS!! this church is so incredibly true and brings absolute happiness. Be good and be happy!
