Mission Blues....

This isn't anyone I know, but it is a good picture of what a girl usually looks like as she opens her mission call. So here it goes...

Well I think it's true that the grass is greener on the other side. Before I met the love of my life I really wanted to go on a mission. Heavenly Father knew that it wasn't my destiny to serve a mission for the Lord, but to start an eternal family instead, BECAUSE that's what happened. I'll never regret or want to turn back time so that I could serve a mission instead of marry the love of my eternity, but to be totally honest every time I watch a girl open her mission call, my tears well up for one, happiness, but a little tinge of jealously in the background.

I am so excited to say that one of my best friends, Molly Davis, was just called tonight to the Manchester, England Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
