A disclaimer - this keyboard is terrible, and please don't cringe at all my misspelled words. We`ll just blame it on the keyboard and time, and not on my English, deal? :) Not my fault - I have never actually had an American comp since TN, and I actually rather like it that way. I learn a ton about other cultures, and my Spanish is getting better everyday :)
|This is called `dulce de membrillo`, and is suuuuper yummy. It's basically jam, but firm, and tastes exactly like fruit leather! I'm a fan, and eat it with crackers|
I love you all! Thank you for your examples and lessons to me through my life -remember the quote that says that the Lord often answers our prayers through other people? One way that the Lord answers my prayers is by bringing to my remembrance things that you have said to me, or interactions that we have had. The other day, the Lord helped me remember the example of my parents in paying tithing to teach me the principle of example. I remember Eden's constant ability to think and notice the smallest of needs of other people, and unquestioningly act on those. I think of Carissa's reactions to stress, and her understanding of the importance to build ourselves before we can build others. Mason's ability during his mission to speak with the power of God, because of his unyielding obedience. Brayden's example of not allowing the personalities of others to knock down your own. You are such a part of my mission, and I am so grateful for your presence and example. Thank you for being my joys - I love you so!!
Really, I am loving my time here. There is so much that we learn in a mission that we can never learn otherwise. Its the best decision I have made thus far in my life, and I know that I will use the things I am learning here for the rest of my life.
