I'm Expecting A Letter

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.
Writing a missionary isn't complicated.
It's all about making someone's day.
And why wouldn't I want to do that?


  1. Way to be committed, and so not like me. ;)
    I'm waiting for a letter too. Only, not from a missionary, yet. I freak out every time the mailman comes, and when I actually talk to the person I wrote first.

  2. i remember this feeling! it's been a few years since i've written missionaries lately but when i was fresh out of high school i LIVED for those letters! it's the greatest feeling in the world...treasure it!

  6. Agreed! :] I love getting letters and sending them. I do need to be better about writing real letters to my friends though. I am pretty good at emailing but I need to get more handwritten letters sent out!

  7. Cute! I've learned to always listen to my mama! She's usually right 98% of the time!
