It Came!!

I've been absent for a while but all for a good reason!
This reason...


It came! It was supposed to come on Wednesday but didn't. Of course. I honestly thought I was going to die. Thank heavens it came Thursday! There was no way I would've made it to Friday. 
Our mail comes late afternoon-ish so after I got the text from my mom I got to head off to class. Lucky me. I couldn't miss or trust me, I would've.. 
I think Heavenly Father knew I wouldn't last in a 3 hour Physiology lab class so for some divine reason we got out an hour and a half early! Hallelujah. 
I sped home and just held the envelope. Inside it was probably the most crucial information I have received thus far in my life. I sobbed. Like a baby. 
This envelope threw my emotions for a ride that's for dang sure. 

I had to wait for a very looooong 3 hours until everyone showed up. We put up a map so everyone could make a guess where they thought I was going. 
I was too sick and nervous to even make a guess for myself. 

Then, the moment came. I was bawling by the time I started opening the envelope! I opened it and read...

Dear Sister Brian: (cue uncontrollable sobbing)

You are hereby called as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the WASHINGTON SEATTLE mission!!!!

Cue more crying. And screaming. 

It was the most amazing moment ever.
I'm so grateful to have had the most amazing family and friends there. I sure love those people.

^ world's best mom right there ^

I love my parents

I'd like to give a little shout out to the best roommates ever! I love these girls. And 5 out of the 6 of us are going on missions. 2 are leaving on the same day as me. Hooray for missions!!

 my mum's cute little setup for me

I have gotten so many people telling me that Seattle is the perfect place for me, that I will fit right in. I'm not really sure what that means but I know this is where Heavenly Father wants me. I love this gospel so much and cannot wait to share it with the people of Washington who I love already!!! 

Watch out Seattle, I'm coming!!
