Kind of a big deal...

mmm...November 7th, 2009. Felt like Christmas. Can you guess why?

I'll give you a hint....

Elder Moody + Argentina + 6 more months = SLC airport!!!

ok. that wasn't a very good equation...but you get the picture! The last time I saw Chad was pretty much right in this very spot! It was April 21, 2008 and I was lucky enough to get a good kiss & hug goodbye from him as opposed to the classic "handshake"! (I was headed back home to Arizona and he still had another two weeks until he had to report to the MTC. ) These next 6 months are going to FLY, and I couldn't be happier with how everything has worked out for us!

Really, truly, I am so blessed.

I love my missionary!

I know, I know...6 months still probably seems like a loooong time to most of you.

But, when you haven't seen the love of your life in EIGHTEEN MONTHS, trust me, it's nothing!

A quick story:

A couple weeks ago Chad and his companion were on their way home to their area in Bragado, Argentina with two other elders on a double decker bus like this one:

aaand it crashed into a small car, swerved out of the way to avoid hitting a huge semi-truck, and went onto two wheels into a ditch on the side of the road.

Thanks to some serious divine intervention, there were no fatalities. But, that's still pretty crazy!

Anyway, can you believe it's already November? I can't. But I'm definitely not complaining!

Well, in conclusion, I would like to share this little quote with you that I came accross the other day. Sylvester Stalone said it...random...but it's a good one, nonetheless.

"I learned the real meaning of love. Love is absolute loyalty. People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades. You can depend so much on certain people, you can set your watch by them. And that's love, even if it doesn't seem very exciting."
Amen, Rocky Balboa.
