|This is NOT how I will look in Texas|
I had a huge party when I opened my call and a lot of my wonderful friends came. I slit open the envelope and pulled out the single sheet of paper with words that changed my life.
I read the words Sister "Teach..." It was such a wonderful experience and I sobbed and sobbed.
I'm so excited to go to Texas. I never would've thought Texas. I've never wanted to go to Texas, but I know that it is the right place for me to be.
I'm terrified. I'm scared to go to a new state, leave my family, and be gone for 18 months. I know that I'll be able to do it, but I've had some pretty hard moments. Yesterday I curled up in my bed and cried. But here's the thing. I know that it is the best thing that could happen to me at this time. I also know that I will be blessed for my service.
I'm excited. I'm scared. I'm happy. Overall, I'm going to have a very busy 61 days! I will miss you all while I'm gone, but I'm sure Mom will give you so many updates while I am in TEXAS!!!!
