I bet you're wondering what's in the box underneath my bed. And if you weren't, I bet you are now.
WELL I WON'T TELL YOU.
So! Not much happened this week, actually! But that will not make this email any *boringer than they normally are! I will begin by telling you what I forgot to tell you last week, and that is that I have a new wardmate! His name is Elder Waters, and he has ACTUALLY red hair. It's a strange turn of events.
Oh yeah, did I mention that I'm seriously cursed now? I have gotten sick or injured the first week of every transfer since I became a missionary! And yes, I'm still a little sick now, but that's not really a big problem unless I die, in which case it will be a *biggerest one. It's not a bad sickne- Wait. Hold on for a moment, will you?
MAN OVERBOARD!!! *Dinging bell and pounding feet as Captain Brooksby throws a life preserver to a struggling seaman, heroically pulling him from the raging surf and saving his life. The man, who's name is Erma Drownin, adopts Captain Brooksby as a second father and all is well.*
Okay, I'm back! Have I ever told you guys what's on my bucket list? Probably not, as I didn't have one until a few days ago when Elder Croft asked what was on it! But now I have pretty much one thing on there, and that is this:
1. Become a cool dad.
Aaannnnd... SCENE. That's all! I've been thinking about being a father a lot this week, and I'm really glad that I've had such a wonderful example to teach me what to do to wrangle kids :D There are a TON of young families in the ward I'm in, and I JUST WANNA HOLD A CHILD SO BADLY BUT I'LL GET SUED IF I DOOOOOO....... Life is hard.
You know who the best dad ever is, though? Heavenly Father, cause He's perfect! So if I want to be a good dad, or a good person, I just have to do my best to be like Him!
Thank you all for your wonderful quotes!!! I loved hearing what you guys found meaningful, and they were a real booster to me as well! :D
Tyson and Zoo, I love you guys a lot :) Life is probably hectic right now, but I promise it'll get better! Or, at least, you'll get used to chaos.
Stay on the Old Ship Zion, all you crazy people! Being Captain is fun, but I much prefer a Captain that actually knows what's best for all of us. Thanks, Captain God!
I love all of you to infinity and beyond!!!
Remember Erma Drownin! He has small little legs and cannot swim well!
