Last week she got the letter and was very excited to read it and hear what was going on in her long lost friend's life. When I was still in college, my best friend decided that she needed to go on a mission.
So, he set to work and read every book he could find, studied every teacher he could meet, and talked to every girl he could talk to to figure out dating.My daughter came to me in tears as she felt the letter diminished their friendship and had it reduced her to just being a project. I spent about a 1/2 hour talking to my daughter and consoling her. I have a money-making program I want to tell you about! Enclosed was a Bo M with her testimony written in it.She felt judged and unappreciated for the truly wonderful person she is. I tried to explain to her how this "friend" has been influenced and is probably thinking she is doing a great thing by reaching out "finally". " I said something like, "Uh, Don, I wouldn't be interested much in that. I was so mad at her that I immediately wrote back and told her that maybe we should stop being friends if I was just going to be another project.I look back at the 2 years my husband was on his mission and feel the need to evaluate the good, bad, horribly ugly mistakes and accomplishments I made.This post is dedicated to all the lovely ladies still "actively waiting" for their "boyfriend" to return home from a 2 year mission.
