goodbye, elder.

goodbye to you.
this goodbye was a hard one.
by far the hardest one i've experienced in life so far. 
it's not forever, but two years is forever to me.
you are my best friend.
you mean the world to me.
i am happy for you.
i am praying for your strength, courage, and safety.
i miss you already and it's only been five days.
{725 more to go.}
you'll be an incredible missionary.
the people of mexico will just adore you.
you'll be missed at home, dearly.
but, you are in the right place doing the right thing.
we all love you.
thank goodness for your cute friends waiting at the curb to embrace you.
they helped my goodbye end with a smile and 
gave me the comfort to know you'd be perfectly alright in this new chapter of your life.

p.s. i miss our little texting convo's, but i'm looking forward to exchanging letters. 
i know from experience, letters helps your love grow.
