despite the enjoyment i feel being with my happy little family and the love i feel for them and living in hawaii, i've allowed myself to get really homesick for my friends and family on the mainland lately. last night we had the sister missionaries over for dinner, which is something we love to do. the sisters are so happy, and kind, and fun, and sincere and every time they come over we feel so much peace and joy and i always feel the spirit so strongly. it is similar to feelings i feel in the temple and we have missed being in the temple since it is under construction.
last night i was thinking that the sisters must feel so homesick too- so far away from their homelands and familiar friends and family, but they exude this happiness that is contagious and uplifting. i think i know why and this video i was watching this morning talks about why.
hope it finds you well today- happy sunday.
