HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY RACHEL TANNER! I literally love you so much and I can't believe you are 21! My birthday wish for you this year is to A. not have any car problems the entire year B. all of your schooling will be a breeze with your hard work and perfect grades and C. that you can write the coolest rap in history about being 21. Then when I return I will beat box to it as you rap. Just like after high school every day when we would walk to my car. I love you!
This week literally FLEW by. It wasn't until Friday that we realized a lot of our lessons fell through and the week was almost over. That is something I have learned--not everything will go our way and that is absolutely okay. When our goal is not the number of things we can accomplish in one day but rather on how much of a difference can we make in one day, the work gets easier. I think this can be applied to life outside of a mission. When someone cancels on a lunch date, or when your To Do list doesn't get fully accomplished, or when an easy work day turns into a stressful one, what can we do to turn our situations into opportunities? I'm stoked to keep learning things here to apply in the life back home.
P.S. Fact: my 6 month mark is in 2 days. Whaaaaaa?
