I Can't Take It Anymore!

I put my mission papers in a week ago. Judging by when a few of my friends have gotten their calls I should get my call on Wednesday. LONGEST WEEK AND A HALF OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!! I think about it all day. I dream about it at night. There's no escape. 
If it doesn't come on Wednesday, I'm gonna lose it. Go totally bonkers. I'm not sure if this madness filling up inside of me is excitement, or fear, or doubt, or joy, or nerves, or what! All I know is I need to throw up pretty much all the time. I know, TMI. 

Wednesday. 3 days. I can do it.

Everyone Needs to See This

Tender Mercies

For some reason I have developed this weird habit of storing important pictures on flash drives. I don't know why I do it. I just always have since high school.

I had a flash drive that was devoted to my Oakcrest 2010 pictures. One day about 8 months ago I was looking for this flash drive and could not find it anywhere. Knowing that this had all my pictures from one of the most important experiences of my life on it, I cried. I thought it was lost forever. I knelt in prayer asking/pleading/more of begging Heavenly Father to help me find my ever so important flash drive with pictures of all of my children (children meaning campers) on it. I believe I said the words "PLEASE! Just let it turn up SOMEWHERE! ANYWHERE! As long as I know where it is."

I continued looking and no luck.

About 3 days later my roommate got an email from a missionary in Belgium who she had recently sent a package to. The email asked why she sent him a flash drive with pictures of girls at some camp on it. Belgium! What are the chances?! I guess somehow it fell into the package or something. It definitely showed up SOMEWHERE.

Over the past months my roommate has asked him about this flash drive and we've heard no other word on the matter. Until a few weeks ago. HE STILL HAS IT!!! He just needs an address to send it to. I could not be more grateful. Pictures are one of those things I would protect with my life! Maybe not my life. But they mean a lot to me.
