Happy Birthday, kid. I love you. I hope you like the thing I sent. If anyone can pull it off, it's you. Man, I love you so much and I can't wait to seeeeeee you. Holy crap you’re eighteen...you’re still 15 to me...tops. Keep being a babe and keep it classy.
We had a pretty good week. You guys will be proud to hear that I run every morning. And it's kind of enjoyable too. I think it helps that I know Zr MB loves it, so I just do it for her. We don't go that far, and it's dark and cold, but it's good for me haha. I'm missing my little Jillian Michaels boost every morning though. Oh well.
I've sort of been able to pin point lessons that I've learned in each of my cities. Groningen: to get over myself and get to work. I learned that I feel good when I come home tired and feeling like I've done what Heavenly Father wanted me to do that day, Maastricht: apply that even more and charity. LOVE IS DA KEY. Den Haag: I learned a lot of really personal things there and I'll always treasure that, but I also learned that all is never well in Zion, but it sure is a lot easier if you have good company. In Lelystad I learned a lot about the Terrestrial Kingdom and how to recognize the small beautiful things around you and enjoy the gooooood people in life.
I'm really excited to see what Lokeren teaches me. I learned this week that Heavenly Father gives us exactly what we need. This week has been one of those "no more and no less" weeks. I know that He provides. I know that fasting works, too. A couple of nights this week, I've gone to bed thinking we are going to have an appointment in the evening the next day. (Side note: It's dark here and people hate it when we go to their doors when it's dark, so I always like having appointments in the evening) but then during the night, the person texts us and tells us it's not going to happen. But how merciful that Heavenly Father lets me go to sleep thinking that I'll have a good evening haha. And then, those evenings that the appointments fall through, we still see huge miracles. Plus, this week, we got the list of who is inactive, so we can start looking them up at night, hallelujah. I remember praying one morning this week after reading the text that we didn't have an appt anymore, and I was just asking that our back up plans would be good and that we'd be able to do what He needed us to do, and I just felt so much peace and sort of realized that it happened because He wanted us to do something else. And we had good nights! We found potentials and saw small miracles. My faith is sometimes really tested here, but I know that Heavenly Father will provide.
Okay, we have an appointment now, but I'll get back on later to send pictures and stuff.
