I am so happy and some days I'm just in utter disbelief that my life worked out the way it has. I'm really lucky. Last night I was staring at the map on our wall and it finally started sinking in that my mission call should be here either next week, or some time soon. Can you even comprehend that??? Me? A missionary?! This is my life.
My cute roommate has no idea where to guess except she's convinced it won't be stateside haha so she just put a line of arrows away from the states.
We've got a good concentration in Australia.
Quite a few rooting for Sweden.
But I would say most guesses are stateside.
I can honestly say I'll be happy to just have a call some where on planet earth. I am so lucky. And still in awe that I even have this privilege.

When life is hard, just laugh. And when life is really good, still laugh. Unfortunately, some of us (namely myself) have a problem with laughing. I just love laughing and sometimes I seriously cannot stop. Yesterday I had a laughing attack and my roommates were a little concerned. When I was in Sweden, Lisa documented one of these so called 'laugh attacks.' If you suffer from the same disease, I'd like to know I'm not alone.
It's kind of a good problem.

Yesterday it was like 60 degrees! I went and played at the park and went on some walks to enjoy it while I could. And thank goodness I had the sense to do so because today it is a BLIZZARD. But I still got my green holiday spirit on.
My polka dot socks are a nice touch, right?
Secretly, I really love this holiday because:
+++ It marks 1 month until my birthday
+++ It's my cousin's birthday
+++ It's a low maintenance/low expectation holiday
+++ It's just a fun break from the monotony of this time of year.

So, as many of you know, I have been working on mission papers to serve a mission for my church! And trust me, it has been a long process. BUT, they are done and submitted and in just a couple of weeks I should be getting a letter telling me where I'm going!
Making the decision to serve a mission was not an easy one. Once I realized that it really was my choice, I thought, why wouldn't I go do this? I love Christ. And I want others to know about Him. This may be the only time in my life where I get the opportunity to devote my whole self for 18 months to just telling people about Him.
Yes, it is hard.
Yes, it is full of uncertainties.
Yes, it requires faith.
Yes, it is scary, but I decided that any decision I make, should not be determined by fear.
I'm excited, nervous, scared, and anxious to know where I'll be sent. In just a few weeks I'll be posting about it. Until then, feel free to guess!
