I think this is the first time since we moved away that I have REALLY missed home. All of a sudden my life went from easy breezy to a lot of different little trials happening...and I wish I could pop over to my sister's and lay on her couch and tell her all about life's little dramas, or how my heart is breaking for so many of my friends over huge things people should not have to deal with at all. :(
So, our annual 'girl's weekend' could not be coming at a better time. I am so excited to be going away with my sister, my sister in law, and her sister. We have a blast every time we go, and I know this year will not disappoint!!!
I hate that I can't see them whenever I want, but I know that I am one of many who lives away from family, and those other people seem to be surviving, so I guess I can, too, hahaha.
Another thing that came at JUST the right moment was the General Relief Socitey broadcast. Oh, my. The words that were spoken were so uplifting and inspiring and edifying. I look up to our General Relief Society presidency so much, and admire those women and their testimonies. I also loved Elder Ukdorf's talk, he is such a darling man! And I felt like he was speaking right at me, it was great.
Immediately after it was over, the lonelyness for my sisters was eased, as I looked around and saw all of my other 'sisters' sitting around me, recieving the same message I was. It was good to feel that even though I am so far from home, that I will always have my ward family, and that is very comforting!!
