I am so, so happy for her. I surely hope that one day I will be able to do the same. How amazing it would be to be able to focus on serving others 24/7 for 18 months. To have the blessings of missionary work. She has been called to Washington DC as a "women's axillary specialist" which means she is there to support the women in whatever means they need. It is going to be so awesome.
I am so excited to be driving back East with her in two weeks after she finishes a week in the MTC. It is going to be so much fun. One of the things I was most excited about was that our journey takes us right through Chicago and Marissa and Christopher have just moved to Chicago. So I will get to have dinner with my girl !!! Amazing how things work out.
As I was going about my day yesterday I also thought about how awesome it would be to visit Nauvoo. We will be so close. Nothing formal. But on our drive back East I am sure there are many Church history sites we could visit.
So if you have driven back East along highway 80 and you can think of anywhere fabulous we can stop along the way to get a bite to eat or stretch our legs - please let me know.
So excited for our journey !!!
