I didn't realize it was going to be so hard to let him go.
It's not so much of the letting go.
I have been preparing and hoping for him to go on a mission since he was young and I can't describe the joy I felt when he finally decided it on his own.
So the emotional roller-coaster is not only because I will miss him.
Yes I admit I'm a little nervous for him.
I didn't realize he would be going to Philippines. I felt like a bad mother not teaching him the language. I tried a little by buying a Tagalog CD and teaching the kids when they were young but failed to implement it.
I guess, it's the feelings that all missionary mothers go through and it's not something easy to describe.
There's something sacred about the feeling. It's a glimpse of an eternal joy.
We still managed to squeeze in some more shopping at the Deseret Books and then passed by the Missionary Mall to order more pants.
|By shopping at the Missionary Mall, he had a free meal at this Smokehouse restaurant.|
Their sauces is to die for!
|It was a cute little restaurant|
Then we headed out to pick up Jonathan and Cherie at their place
|The newlyweds are so cute with their matching jackets :)|
|Went to BYU, passed by their Stadium|
|They toured the University while I tried to catch some zzzzz in the car|
