Never before in my life have I actually been excited when I check the mail.
Every time I drive by my mail box, I think...maybe I got a letter today?
I never expected that I would WANT to check the mail every day.
It's kind of a new & surreal feeling.
Maybe that's what my mom was talking about.
When I asked my mom whether I should write a missionary, she said, "Write all those boys you went to school with" She said the names of a couple of boys I knew and I immediately dismissed them. Why would I write them? They were never really friends with me. Also, mom?! What?! Why would I write THOSE boys. You're ridiculous.
I think what my mom was trying to convey to me was that it's not really about the missionary you write, but about the feeling you get when you receive a letter and vis versa.
I'm sure those boys that I write to get just as excited as I get when they receive a letter.
