i just wanted you to know that i've been thinking of you. and ever since we moved, i haven't been able to find the moon. it makes me sad. i feel like i left it in louisiana. i'm sure i'll see it soon enough, perhaps we're just surrounded by too many trees and other houses. perhaps the city has covered it up with their bright lights. perhaps it really is gone. or perhaps i just miss you too much. i miss our late night walks. and i miss you.
thanks for all of your prayers. even from thousands of miles away, you still manage to be the best mom.
love you LOTS and LOTS!
The same night I wrote this post, I received a phone call from AUSTRALIA! My mom had decided not to extend her mission by six months--which means she will be coming home in November! OH HAPPY DAY! I got the news while waiting in line for my paint at Home Depot and I swear to you, every person in that department now knows that my mom will be home in less than three months!! WHOO-HOO!!
