I waited for so long!!!
4 and a half weeks....
It was painstakingly hard.
When people say it's difficult to wait for your call, I can testify from first hand experience that it SUCKED.
Days were long, times were hard, and the whole time I knew I couldn't date and that I had to be alone and study scriptures.
I felt like a monk but worse... the temptation was right there. THINK OF THE MISSED OPPORTUNITY COSTS!!!
It was so long I decided to title this time as "patience and long suffering," with a new part for each week.
You know they even lost my call in the mail... from SLC... I could've driven and picked it up but nooooooo.
During this time I went through phases, joy & gladness>impatience>cynicism>repentance, then it starts over.
HAHAHA I remember there was even a time when I sent a letter to church headquarters saying something that resembles, "have you heard of FedEx? there's this thing called 2 day shipping and I really think my tithing money should go to that." I got very impatient at times....
But that was okay! When my call finally arrived on April 7th at 8:05am MTD I had a plan and it was all coming together.
