Dear Family and Friends,
This week was dead! Wow! I actually reaped the consequences for not drinking water, finally.... You know what they say about choosing the action, but not being able to choose the consequence. Ahahah.... Well, That's what I got this last week.
I have had a hard time drinking enough water my whole life, but I've never experienced anything worse than headaches, to which my dad would ask, "Are you drinking enough water?" Well, the answer was probably always no.
On Friday, I got up on time, and exercised, and did all the study, and then when we got out the door, I started to feel dizzy, and not well. We got to the church and then I felt really not well. And then I couldn't get anywhere, and I just needed to lay down and rest. On Saturday, I had a headache, stomach ache, and a lot of other stuff going on, so I had to take it easy. Didn't feel like eating much or doing much, but the Elders gave me a priesthood blessing. I am glad I could receive one. Sunday was pretty much ok. Except sometimes my stomach would hurt from time to time.
The week was a good one though. Sunday was good as well.
We are doing what we can to find Paula. We hope she gets out of the hospital soon.
Also, I have received my transfer call, and I am! Staying Hooray! So happy! MY new companion is Sister Bangerter, and she is coming straight from Kofu! I love Kofu! And I hope we will have the chance to talk about all the great things about Kofu. It is too bad she came out of Kofu right at the start of Grape Season, but I guess that's that. She has to leave in the morning to get here on time. >.< Kofu is so far away!
So, I love that I can just open the scriptures and feel peace. Lately, I have just needed that extra peace, because my brains are going all over the place. Today, I watched the Mormon Message called "You Never Know". Its a bit long (ten minutes) but it reminds me that I just never know the good that comes out of what I do.
By the way, I realize that maybe I should be less selfcentered. Writing this email every week makes everything about me, and that's hard. It gets information out to everyone, but I wonder sometimes if it makes it harder to have direct communication with a lot of people. Maybe it feels far away, just like a newspaper. Haha. Lol.
So, I found out that people actually do read the blog... Haha. Thanks Melissa for keeping it up! Some of the Sisters who come here tell me, "Yeah, I read your blog!" And then
when I show them pictures, they say, "Yeah I saw that!" Ahaha...
And so, I'm offering this simple phrase, to kids from Utah and Missouri too. Though it's been said, many times, many ways, I love you, I do!
"You are hereby called to serve in the Japan Tokyo South Mission."
