is it already February? has it already been six months? why yes, yes it has. it may seem small to some or it may seem like an eternity to others. i haven't really decided which one i side with quite yet. but i guess that doesn't really matter because my dear, sweet, elder stapley is 1/4 done with his mission. if there is one thing i have learned in these 6 months or 184 days is to not just count the days but make the days count.
while he is on his mission i want to improve myself, discover my talents, make new friendships, enjoy each new day, become more converted to the gospel & ultimately become a better me. he is learning & growing & becoming closer to our Lord & Savior so why shouldn't i? & as we both grow closer to Christ we become closer to each other. i love that. & although i miss him something terrible... there is no where else in the world i would rather have him be than serving the Lord by preaching His gospel to the people of richmond, virginia. he is a shining example of righteousness & obedience to me everyday.
i can do 18 more months of this. no problem.
