look at her (while drinking),
so I got a face full of water!
Material things become less important (and you realize that if you have done without it for a year or two, you probably don't need it!) .... A mission tends to focus one on the truly important things in life - The Lord, family, friends, and helping those family and friends we don't even know yet find the joy that the gospel brings.
I love the scriptures. I read them pretty much totally in Spanish now and I love it!
I am happy, fairly healthy, and constantly amazed at God's grace and the power of His atonement. There's no better life!
Addendum: Thanks for sharing the day with me today, Hermana Castillo! Today for P-day we went up to a little pueblo called Mijas that has burro taxies, beautiful views, and very fun little shops. It was a GREAT day! We bought each other cute necklaces, and then I found an awesome hand-made silver necklace from a little shop that I couldn't resist, so I got TWO necklaces today! Pretty much unheard of. We shared some hand-made icecream and candied almonds, and wandered through lots of little shops.
Then on the way home I got to drive for the first time in Spain (no problem), so watch out, world! I'm on the loose! ;)
