The hot tub was too GREENISH to get in after my run this morning. I was so disappointed! And then it hit me...like Megan says...such a third world problem. I quickly was grateful that the reason it is so GREENISH is cuz of all the visiting we had in there this weekend. I am SO GRATEFUL for my hot tub.
I am so grateful for you SAM. I realized what a sweet GOOD thing it is that we miss you so deeply. If we DIDN"T miss you it would mean that we hadn't built this fortress of love and memories. But for goodness and our life's loving sake, we have, and there is this HUMONGOUS hole here when you are gone. I started thinking about the holes that will be left all over England when you come home. Sam...I want to love like you. I wanna leave holes that people want to make sure get refilled. We got a sweet note from one of the sister missionaries you are serving with about how much SHE admires you and wants to be like you. Pretty cool at 19 to have others wanting to be like you.
Michael looks beautiful and Seattle seems to be his Happy Place. He was just offered a job at an Irish Pub he loves and he is thrilled. He will stay at PF CHANGS till he see which is better.Josh has found a room mate and they are looking for apartments together, but more in the downtown area. It looks pretty sure that he will work for PF CHANGS while he takes this school break and figures out what it is he really wants to spend his life working towards. Now that they will both be in Seattle I will search diligently for a Do Terra partner there. I have been surprised at how accepting I am being of them being so far away. I have a new LOVE and appreciation for airplanes and airlines. I need to settle on one and become their frequent flyer. I'm grateful and feel the synchronicity of our family trip there...makes it easier for me when I can picture where they are. Josh will head out after Christmas.
Megs leaves on Christmas night to go to Costa Rica on a vacay with Casey. She is counting the days. That girl should be a travel writer or at least a travel AGENT. Spencer is Mr. Happy and working and schooling and HE leaves on road trip w Stephen and Terrance and the other boys for a week on the 29th. Everyone is busy being adults...create happiness.
Your package will be mailed first thing in the morning. I am INTENDING it to get there on time. PLEASE use some of the money in your account to take advantage of CHRISTMAS IN ENGLAND. Buy yourselves some Christmas treats and Christmas dinners...NICE DINNERS out. Get a tree...? Buy a souvenir your future family can take out each year and you can tell them your stories ....
I LOVE YOU LOVE BUG!!! Happy 1st day of December.
