See you in 1.5

As long as I can remember, I've always hated the term "goodbye." It's just too sad. It has always been see you later. Over the weekend, I had to say just that to my sisters Lydia and Candace. Lydia and her kids were at the St. George Rec. Center so I had to hurry and say my "goodbye's" to the kids before they wanted to jump right back into the pool. Daniel and Sophia, I think, are too young to know what's really going on. However, Sadie and Alexis knew and they kept giving me hugs. Lydia told me not to cry because she would start crying. Well needless to say, we both started crying. I'll see them in a short 18 months. Lydia reassured me and told me, "you're going to change lives, Mary. They're going to say, 'remember that girl who knocked on our door?'" I love her. She always knows how to make me feel better. Then my sister Candace reassured me that she is always there for me-- that she will do anything if I need her and all I have to do is ask. We were outside saying bye and I swear I was getting dehydrated by the second (remember? I was in St George). I love my two older sisters. I'm glad I have their support.

Yesterday I had to say bye to some good friends along with Jessica and my twin sister Jennifer. I'm going to miss Jessica so much. She came over and I couldn't stop hugging her-- I'm glad she's going to write me. I don't want to miss a minute of her life. I hope all the best for her and I can't wait to come back and talk about all that has changed. Then there's Jennifer. She's my other half (it's a twin thing). It's the hardest thing to do! Kaylie Johnson, give me pointers (write them to me because I won't see the comment on this till I'm back ha.)? I love Jennifer and I have become closer with her since she's had her sweet little boy, Jude. I'm going to miss her tremendously. 

Last night was a fun night! The Myers' invited me and some of our friends to go shooting with them along with hot dogs and s'mores. Mmm. They were delicious. Then afterwards, we watched my last movie! Fun with Dick and Jane. I always forget how hilarious that movie is.

Well, I'll see you all later. My great friend Mackenzie is going to be in charge of my blog! She'll be posting my weekly e-mails on here.

Thank you, all, for your support. I appreciate it. Without you guys, I wouldn't be where I'm at right now.

Three hours until I'm set apart as a missionary! How exciting.

See you in 1.5 years.
