More About Teach in Texas
Yesterday while we were having our FHE on Ireland, my phone buzzed. New text message. Now first let me confess that I don't have a smartphone. The little tiny pic that showed up on my screen was nearly impossible to see! So I ignored it and rejoined our festivities.
A short while later, another text showed up from an unknown area code. It said, "We love your sweet daughter. She's coming for dinner tomorrow. We are going to eat Pei Wei and can't wait." By this point I was a little creeped out. So I responded, "Which daughter? I have eight." After the third text said, "Wow!!! Well you're a lucky mom and an amazing mom too! XX." I felt like I should probably know who I was talking to so I asked straight out. "Who is this?"
At that she declared her name and that she was a member of a particular ward in Texas. And that ward happens to also have another member I knew very well, my missionary daughter, Teach! This sweet sister kindly sent me some cute pics, one is even a video, and kind words I so needed to hear yesterday.
She promised to give my girl a hug from me. Oh how I miss her!
It was pretty much a year ago today that we dropped her at the MTC.
I have more from Teach to share with you tomorrow. Even though she was nervous to move, she is loving her new area. And apparently she loves the food from Pei Wei too. Who knew!?
