So sad it's over

Well my mission is over and it's so sad. Had a wonderful visit with my Zone Leader and he gave me some things to thnk about, I just may come back. The temple assignment is over as well, since I will be moving to Nampa, Idaho to live with David and Ladelle. I will miss my girls, but thank goodness for cellphones. I am so greatful that the Lord has opportunities for us when we retire from work, we need not feel useless, there is always work to be done in the Lord's church. I'm excited to serve, and know that there's more for me to do where ever I live. So we'll see what happens, I just might decide to serve a full-time mission and come back to the Salt Lake Family History Library, who knows what a year may bring. I'm leaving some very good friends who will still be there another year. I love my Zone Leader, he and his wife began the same time I did on the mission and they will be there another six months and when they finish, they will stay and serve at the library. My Zone Leader, Elder Teeples, has known President Monson many years and gave me a run down on who the man is, and all he has done and accomplished in his life. I want to get the book To The Rescue and learn more about this wonderful man the Lord has called to be our Prophet. I love this church!!!

Things on my mind

Well, I've been thinking about my mission and that it's ending soon. Already I am getting teary andsad for it to end. I've met some wonderful people on this mission and will miss them greatly. The thing I love most about the time I've spent at the Family History Library, is that my testimoy has grown and I love the spirit that is felt there within it's walls. Helping patrons gives me a great feeling of love, to see how excited they are when they find what they're looking for and they think we're so amazing to have helped them in their search. I'm going to try to extend, but it doesn't look too good right now. However, I can still work at the Temple and I love it there, the spirit is just as wonderful and I love my fellow workers. When I move, I'll be going to Idaho and live with David and Ladelle and get to be closer to their family. I have another Great Granddaughter due in April this year, and I'm looking forward to being close to her. I can't remember if they've picked out a name for her yet. Things are happening for me right now that keeps me busy and thinking all the time. I love my girls and will miss them so much when I leave, it's going to be hard for me.
