I have no idea why it's taken me almost 17 months to realize I could have been doing subjects like the show "Friends" where everything says, "The One with..." Rest assured, the rest of them will follow suit. :)
This week zoomed by just like the rest. Can someone explain how this is the beginning of my last transfer? I finished making my last planner cover this morning and had a minor freak out moment when I realized the last page of this planner is the last page of my mission. AH. That being said, I still have 6 weeks left, so it still feels like I'm never going home, which I'm 100% okay with because I'm not ready for that. For my last transfer, I will be staying in Baton Rouge, with a TRAINEE!!! Yep. I'm having a baby!! I'm so excited to train and help my sweet new companion come to love this place as much as I do. I hope she's ready to kill it this transfer.
I think my favorite thing from the week was going to the temple again. Sister Castro hadn't been in a long time, and we had a little bit of time on Saturday, so we decided to go. We walked in and our mission president and his wife were there. All of the stake presidents in Louisiana, and one of the area seventies and his wife were all there in our session. Crazy! It was cool though to be able to talk with President and Sister Hansen in the Celestial room. While we were in there, there were two future missionaries with their families. I just sat there and cried seeing how excited they were to leave. Everyone was around them, congratulating them, and talking about their missions. I just got so sad because it felt like that was me not too long ago and then, in the blink of an eye, it's coming to an end. One of the future missionaries, a sister, came and talked to us because she could tell we were sister missionaries. She was just asking for advice and it made me feel so old! And super nostalgic. This is going to be an emotional transfer, I can just feel it.
I love you all so so so much! I hope you have an amazing week!
