Things I Miss Today

These four boys men–I love them all in different ways. They are completely unique, but one very specific thing brings them all together:

They are all serving missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Or, sometimes, we’re better known as Mormons.

That basically means (and very basically) that they’ve chosen to give up two years of their lives to go wherever they are asked to go in the world to do service and to tell other people about our religion, cutting off almost all ties with the lives they leave behind.

It’s a huge sacrifice, as I’m beginning to see, and today I miss them. One is in California, one is in Mexico, one is in South Dakota and the other is in London. Three will be home within the next 4 months and hasn’t even been gone for a month.

So here’s to them <3
