i love the feeling when i can log on and feel like i have so many great things to blog about. so first off, i need to congratulate my little sister hannah. she made the drill team! she is now an official pionette. needless to say she deserves it, and i do not care what other girls say about her, she worked her tail off and is a beautiful dancer. she earned her right to be on that team. i am so proud of how hard she has worked for this. she has truly amazed me with her work ethic, and how quickly she can learn things. she catches on so fast, and never stops trying. she was so excited and gave it her all, and it paid off because her name was posted among the others who were chosen. i have never seen someone so happy in my entire life. and that's wonderful to me because she has gone through so much turmoil and hardship, especially in the friends department, that it was nice to see her get something she wanted so badly. here's to you little sister, and to the next three years of your life being devoted to drill team.
my next item of business. tanner gets his mission call on wednesday. (hopefully) the anticipation is killing me. i seriously doubt that i will make it all the way to wednesday. i am no patience, and now it is starting to wear even more thin. i can not wait to see the look on his face when he finds out where he has been called to. i can not wait to watch him light up when he reads the words, "Elder Eastmond...". i can not wait to discover where he will spend the next two years of his life serving. i can not wait to see what language he has to learn, or when exactly i can expect him to be gone. not that i want him to leave me, but i want him to be happy more than anything else. and i know that his mission will make him the happiest that he could possibly be right now. plus, a man that is willing and excited to donate two years of his life to the Lord, is super attractive. (; i am just really excited for him to finally start down this path. it has been a really long and brutal waiting process, but i know that he has to wait for a reason because there is only one place in the entire world that the Lord needs him to go. and i can not wait to find out where that is.
i will admit though, it has made me antsy. and also a bit emotional. while i am completely ecstatic for him, i am also a little bit sad to watch him go. it is really a very complicated feeling. i wish i could explain it better. but it is starting to hit me that soon, he will be gone. and that my time with him may or may not be coming to a close. although at the moment i am determined to wait for him. hopefully that doesn't change. (: he truly is an amazing person, and i hope to be more like him someday. and while he is gone, maybe i can become someone that is a lot more worthy of hims time, talents, and love. but one can never predict the future. i am anxious to see what lies ahead for me and tanner scott eastmond.
and finally, my last great news of the day...... some guy told me i was pretty today. well shucks, that was sure nice of him. haha how did he know i needed to hear that today? what a nice guy. (:
live for those happy and joyous moments in your life. don't let them pass by unnoticed. do not let them slip through the cracks. pray for happiness and it will come. love your family and your friends, and never let them forget that you do. just smile today, and let the small things go. it is amazing what will happen if you do!
