It's now been a few months since I've been home, and so much has happened it's insane. Heavenly Father has blessed me abundantly. The day after I returned home- I was blessed to get a message and phone call from my old job, asking me to come back to work. Although I was unsure about finances, and what I was going to do with my life, things also just seemed to all work out. So many other blessings just seemed to come...and the biggest blessing that came my way...well, that was Bud. The man that I had dated before I left for the mission, and had been writing throughout my mission, and had hoped and prayed would still be there, well...he was. :) And as much as I thought I was falling in love with him before I left, well....that was nothing compared to how I feel about him now. We started dating again almost immediately after I got home, and by April 30th were engaged. We will be married June 22nd. And let me tell you, he was well worth the wait. It fills my eyes with tears when I think about how blessed I am, and how complete I feel, now that I've finally found him.
These last few months have been a real whirlwind, but they've been some of the best months of my life. I cannot even begin to express to you my gratitude for our Savior, for the love that he has for us. For how much he loves his missionaries and watches over them; not only while they're serving him in the mission field, but also when they go home. I know that He knows us individually, and that we are never alone. I know that he will fulfill all the desires of our hearts, if we will but be faithful to him, and keep His commandments. And if we really love him...we will.
Here's to finishing another great chapter of life......
