6th "B-Day" July 30, 2013

6th "B-Day" July 30, 2013
in the life for Hermana Talbot

See my sad Mommy face.... NO pictures today....

Due to the changes of me being in the CCM (Missionary Training Center) longer, I am living day by day with the changes being made and them figuring out what to do with me.

Yesterday, I spent the day in the medical office. One phone call (about a dog bite) came in due to the doctor being gone and just not any medical needs. I was with the doctor's wife all day and we had a great time learning about crazy South American medicines/traditions.

All of the other missionaries left this morning for their mission areas. We have been preparing for the next group of missionaries to arrive tomorrow. I also had to pack my bags as I will be moving to the dormitories on the CCM grounds.

The Gilbert's have been wonderful to me today... french toast this morning for breakfast... and so much more.

I am wearing jeans today because I'm not at the CCM. Can I just say I feel like a different woman? OHHH IT'S WONDERFUL.

Nothing much has changed this week other than everything. I do know this. My mission is still Santiago East. I am still learning Spanish. I am still a mission nurse specialist. I am in Chile (which is in South America, I think ;-)). I still love chocolate. I still live for food. (THAT'S MY GIRL <3)

I am so happy to be here. I don't think I've ever felt like this before. I've never had quite a roller-coaster of emotions at the same time.

I know this is where I need to be. I know I have a message to share with the people of Chile. A message that can change lives. I know we have a purpose and an ultimate goal here on Earth, but we can't accomplish that purpose without knowing the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this reason, I am here... to spread the news of something bigger than I will ever be or could become if I were living on Earth alone.

Love you all!!
