Holla!So. You know how last week I said Easterner's are too dramatic about the weather out here? Right after I finished emailing last week, it started snowing....then raining....then sleeting and freezing. So.... I'm not allowed to judge anymore.
I was thinking about that as I was putting on my nametag this morning, and I just thought, "I don't ever want to take this off." And then it made me realize that I don't ever want to not be a missionary. I'm dreading the day that my stake president releases me and tells me to take off my nametag. I'm getting teary just thinking about it. You will only get to see me as Hermana Porter for that short drive home from St. George. I only have 14 more months to be a missionary, and there's so much for me to learn and grow in. I can't believe the time is flying so fast. I don't ever want it to end. I mean, of course I want to see yall again....but can't I just be like the Book of Mormon people who were on missions for 14 years? It's scary how fast time flies. We have so much to learn in this life before we return to our Heavenly Father, and I just wish I had more time to learn it all.
Oh funny quote! We do district drawings every transfer, which is just a drawing of our district with a certain theme (for example, Harry Potter themed, winter themed, villain themed), and our District Leader was saying how he wanted to do celebrities. So we were talking about who we all could be (they said Keira Knightley for me), and he tells Hermana Lawrence, "You could be Demi Lovato." And she was like, "No, she's TOO pretty!" And he replied, "She's not that pretty." OUCH. We died hahaha. We decided that next transfer's theme is going to be "High School." They said I'm the foreign exchange student. hahaha.
