I got proposed to...

Hi again! 

Thanks for the cute St. Patrick's day package! I got it this week but hey, it's never too late for some green right! :) and I also got a nice letter from gramps and grandma Jill with stamps! So thank you!
This week has been really good. Especially since Monday we have been going super extra hard and have had so many miracles. The Lord keeps placing people in our path for us to teach, it's been so incredible. 

On Thursday We had an awesome lesson with sister McCreary about tithing and fasting! But the awesome part came right before we talked about tithing and fasting. We asked her how her Book of Mormon reading was going and she said it was going well. Then we had an opening prayer and after the prayer she said "The spirit told me to read 3 Nephi 27 today so I did!" Which was awesome because we had planned to talk to her about 3 Nephi 27:33 at the end of the lesson anyway. So after talking about the whole chapter and how Christs church is suppose to be called after Christs name, she told us that she has loved learning about this gospel. She said that she is at the point where she knows almost everything we taught her is true (her last thing is the Book of Mormon) and she is just deciding now whether she needs to join or not. We cleared up a few of her concerns as well and continued on with the discussion of 3 Ne 27 and the lesson. During that lesson I felt so strongly in my heart that she will be baptized soon and that as we give her time and let her come to know of the need she has to be baptized, she will act on it. 

On Friday night we had out last lesson ever with sister King. Since she already Pleaded guilty she has to go sadly. We set some goals with her and her husband, had dinner together, and then had a good lesson. We then finished by singing a hymn together which really finished the lesson with such a great spirit. It was a good last lesson and brother King was really into it as well. We are planning on seeing him on Friday too even though she won't be there so hopefully he lets us! 

Last week on Saturday during personal study I read 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 which says "Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)." The footnote for confident is "of good courage and of a good cheer." so I thought about that and it reminded me of an experience I had the day before. 
So Friday it was snowing all day and we decided we were still going to go Tracting with the elders for an APF because they already found the place to go and had it all prepared. So we set out to tract with faith that God would help us to work hard and put forth effort. After not really talking to anyone (the people that we did talk to told us that we would have better luck in the summer) we met this guy named Mark. He said he doesn't live at that house and that he was just visiting for a day. The conversation wasn't really going anywhere. We talked about prayer and the atonement but he didn't seem to be taking it in and he wasn't really answering our questions. So we decided to just go so we gave him a card with our number and a pamphlet to read. My first thought after I gave him the pamphlet was whether I should write the address of the church on it or not. for some reason I decided not to write it. 
However, two hours later he called us and said he wanted to come to church and he needed the address..which never ever ever happens! We were so shocked and excited. That helped me to feel confident and of good cheer that even though God isn't physically next to me, he can manifest his power to me by guiding us to the people we need. We had faith that God would help us and bless us and because of that we were able to be filled with cheer and joy. I know that walking by faith and not by sight does help us to be full of courage and cheer. If I would have wrote the address on the back then he wouldn't of had to call us. Maybe he would have came to church, but we would have known already that he had the address so it wouldn't be as much of a surprise and therefore we wouldn't of had that moment of such great excitement and astonishment of Gods mindfulness of His children. God works in mysterious ways. 
We even have a lesson with Mark today (who we will have to pass on to the elders) at 4 even though it's still pday because that's the only time he could meet with us and because we have been so busy this week that we don't have any other time. So hopefully that goes well! 

On Saturday we got to go to the Templeee!! It was so awesome. We ended up leaving at 11:30 because the session time got pushed back and we didn't get home until 10... Oops. President fuller (branch president) was so good to us though. He made sure we all went out to eat in NY since we aren't allowed to go to Jersey (even though we still drove through NJ) and then he bought us dinner and didn't have us pay for gas or parking like everyone else. He's the best. 

On Sunday we decided to call Megan again since we haven't heard from her in FOREVER. And she answered and acted like nothing happened and said we could come over Tuesday! So we did and it didn't turn out so well. Pretty much when we were driving there we saw a girl that kinda looked like her. So we turned around and went back to see if it really was. Well it was and it was on a busy road so we couldn't stop right there or anything. So we got to a safe place to talk with her and she was gone! So we went and tracted all around her apartment for a bit and then decided to go search for her again. Yes we tried to stalk her. Well just before we turned back into her parking lot, we saw her going to her house! So we hurried and parked and then went to her house. Welllll she didn't answer. We heard her inside and everything. Lame. But we won't give up on her. One day she will come back. Pretty much we spent like a half hour stalking her. Oh well. 

Something else weird happened on Tuesday. I got proposed to! ....you always tell me not to come home engaged, so I said NO. Here is what happened..This guy came up like he was going to shake our hands and so I went to shake his hand and he grabbed my hand and was like "hey there, will you marry me?" And I was just like "uhh what? Huh? No..." And I pulled my hand back away from him and we started walking away and he was like "wait no, really! Do you have a boyfriend? Can I take you on a date?" Haha it was weird. We kinda just got out of there fast.

Tuesday night we went conference Tracting and this man yelled at us and told us we were blasphemy for thinking there could be a prophet on the earth today because God would not talk to people today. Ha it was funny. And then after that we met the guy who won the lotto recently over here. That was cool 

Yesterday president Fuller told us that the church bought a bunch of land around here somewhere and that in the future they want to build a temple! That would be cool. Who knows if it's true or how many years that will be in, but one day when Monticello has its very own temple then it will be the place to be. Sweet though.

Last week during studies I was reading in PMG (Preach My Gospel) and I decided to do an activity that had me read Helaman 10:1-5. It talks about Nephi and how he was left alone after teaching the people. But then the Lord came and told him that he did good. Nephi was told that even though everyone left him, he kept the commandments and always tried his best.  I was thinking about how to apply that to me and sometimes I really feel like that. Just as everyone "dropped" Nephi and left him alone, I feel that way sometimes. Like I do all I can to teach with power and by the spirit and to show them how much I love them and how much the Lord loves them, yet everyone has their agency and even when they know it's I right they don't always follow and so they "drop" us too. But I think the Lord would tell me I did good and I tried my best. It really hit home. My fear was that I would stay here in Monticello for the rest of my mission and watch each of my companions leave me as well! But I guess if this is where I'm needed the Lord will tell me I did well and tried my hardest and that's what matters! 

We have to just work hard to please God. Even if we get left behind (like up here in Monticello) God will always be proud of us for our hard work and when we return home we won't regret it at all. So work hard, be diligent, and do Gods will and you won't regret a thing :) 

I love you all so much! Have a good week! Don't forget to watch the women's conference and watch the new Easter video clip! And happy early birthday to my FAVORITE brother ever!! Have a fabulous birthday even though I won't be there to celebrate with you! You're the best! Xoxox 

Love, 

Sister Tanner <3
With the Kings for our last dinner together

Tracting in the snow - Is it really spring?

Heading to the city for our Temple Day!

At the Temple

Thursday, March 19, 2015

We knocked over 100 doors easily...

Hi again! 

This week was pretty good. We had some really good lessons with less actives this week and we're just super bold and straightforward so hopefully they come to church! One of them called and asked for the address because she had never been to this building before so she is at least thinking it through. I know she will come sometime. I could hear it in her voice :) 

To start off, transfers are on April 1st. So two weeks away. And we talked to president today and he said "I'm going to let the cat out of the bag but sister Quackenbush you are getting transferred." Soooo that means I'm staying for another cycle! Yikes. I called that. Unless we are both leaving but that is a 1 in a million shot right now. Guess I need to love it just a little bit more! I thought I was doing so good. This next cycle has Easter, conference, my birthday, and Mother's Day! And I'll be here in good ol' Monticello. 

Well since you asked I'll be honest, I have sad news, the blue towel has not been found. Has Sister Beth looked for it? Honestly, probably not. But even if she did find it, she probably wouldn't tell us. So if you ask me, she totally found it! :) 

Okay so for treats you can send me any kind of nuts, trail mix, Dried fruits, Brookside chocolates like blueberries or pomegranates or a├žai berries (totally healthy), granola bars, animal crackers(I've been wanting them for months now but I can't bring myself to buy them haha), or just any other snacks like that to eat that isn't alllll sugar. ya know stuff like that :) and I don't mind if you send treats, especially anything with chocolate and peanut butter. I just don't need a huge box of treats. Do I love huge boxes of treats? Yes. Can I eat that much? No. Don't worry about sending me a birthday package, you're good! You send me enough love :)

Last week on Thursday we went to stop by Megan's house because she started avoiding us so we wanted to see what happened. Of course the adversary has just been working super hard on her because she knows this is good. Anyway, we got to her house and we heard the door from the other side and so we just said "kiara?? Is that you?" And she said "ya the door is locked" and so we told her to get her mom and she said "my mom is not here right now." Now kiara (pronounced Kiera by the way) is four years old. So we said "kiara where is your mom. Open the top lock okay?" And she said "my moms not here. Go to the other door. I can unlock that one." So we walked around to the back door of the apartment and she opened the door. We asked her if we could do anything for her or get her anything and she said "no I have some toys left to play with I think" and so we gave her our number and made sure she knew how to call us and what not and we left a note for her mom. Then we went and bought her some goldfish and when we came back the kids playing outside told us that Megan was home...but nobody answered when we knocked and rang and rang :( so sad. We wanted to stay at her apartment with Kiara until Megan got home but we felt that it was a bad idea for some reason so we left and did the best we could. 

Okay so here is a good story for ya! So the kings. Wow have I told you how much I love them? Well on Friday we had yet another great lesson with them. Brother king even asked if they can drive down to the temple trip with us just so he can wait outside. (He isn't going to but that is a huge step for him). Anyway during the lesson we were talking about faith and brother king said that he feels God is already answering his prayers and seeing his desire to be better because they are in the process of getting a new lawyer for sister king and I guess it is possible that she won't have to go to jail! Since the case is 9 years old and she hasn't gotten into any trouble since that DWI she said that they should be able to forget the case. So there is some hope for ya! She did say that whatever happens she is ready for and she will know that if it doesn't go through it will be alright but if it gets waved then they will be able to continue working towards the temple!! Yay yay yay! Then at the end of the lesson brother king walked us out which is a miracle in itself as well. That hour was filled with mixed emotions. I'm super hopeful that she might not have to go, but super stressed because although I know it will be the will of the Lrod, it will kill brother King so much, he will be so sad. In Alma 36:21 it talks about just that. So much stress yet so much happiness and hope.

On Friday we went Tracting and pretty much nobody answered. We knocked over 100 doors easily and talked to like 2 people. But then yesterday the elders ran into a woman who said we left a card on her door and she wants to learn more! So that is awesome! We are going to go meet her this week. Who knows what will come of it but it is exciting and hopeful so that's good for now! :) 

On Saturday we were at sister gaughans house. She is an active member and she is SO loud and  funny. So she was telling us about how she gave a talk in sacrament about Bearing false witness and she was saying how some people liked it and some didn't. So she showed us how some people looked by making this hilarious face of boredom and it was ridiculous because I knew in my head that people were probably so concerned with her talk. She is super awesome but she is crazy funny like I said and she can go on and on sometimes. So as she continued to tell the story of her boring talk I was just laughing and laughing and ended up crying because I was laughing so hard haha oops. 

Sunday we did our car fast again! Yay! I love car fasts. I miss walking Sooo much. So we walked to church and on the way home from church it started snowing a little bit :( it wasn't too bad though, just sad that winter is still here. When will it leave? Probably never. At least that's what it feels like! But it's okay, it's fun :) 

This week I read the talk from last Octobers general conference titled "Stay in the boat and Hold On." I am trying to listen to/read all of them again before conference. In the talk he compared white water rafting to our mortal journey. He talked about how the Lord has provided us with tools to use so that we can stay in the boat. Despite all the tools we have been given (prophets, scriptures, prayer, church, families, etc) there are two reasons why people might get out of the boat. One of the reasons was that when the going gets rough, they jump out and quit. And the other reason is that when the waters are calm and good, they think they can go for a swim rather than follow the rules of the boat, and then a storm comes and they can't get back in. Just as it is important for us to hold on with both hands, we need to hold fast to the iron rod with both hands as well. We need to do all we can to keep going and to rely on the Lord. Sometimes big waves come, and sometimes the water looks nice and we want to go for a swim on a hot day, but in the end, staying in the boat and holding on is so much more worth it. So let's all join together and hold on so that we can all make it to the end together!

I love you all so much! Get a nice tan for me since it's so hot there. I need it. The snow has sucked all the color out of me. Have a fun week! Xoxox 


Love, 
Sister Tanner <3

We have been given so much

MARCH 11, 2015

Hello again!! 

This week has been awesome for the most part! 
First of all, to start off, yesterday we had zone conference and got our new iPads!! Thank you so much for taking care of that for me! They are sweeeet. It's awesome because since the church made a deal with Apple they come preset and then we just have to delete the filter app thing the end of our mission. So like we got the iPad's still in the box with the filters and one of the first things it has us do after putting in our language is to log into our lds accounts. So cool! No other Apple device comes asking for a church membership account.

Thank you so much for the half way package!! I think I have enough candy and treats to last me my lifetime! I think I'll be good on candy and treats for a long time, so thank you! (Aka don't send me candy/treats for my birthday if you send me a package unless it's healthy haha). But ya I still don't believe I'm half way. Feels like just yesterday that I was saying bye to you all! 

It has been SO warm lately! Like today I am wearing short sleeves. It's been in the 50's!! However I am a bit bummed that I will have to stop wearing my leggings/tights because they are really helpful. Especially today since it has been so windy. We got out to go to the post office and my skirt flew up..awk. Lucky I have my thick dark blue leggings on so it was perfectly fine but man if it was summer I would have been in big trouble. Either way, it feels great outside which makes me very happy :) 

Yesterday we met a less active who has been here in New York for about a year but just decided that she wants to come to church again. We haven't had her records until this week. She is in a rehab home right now and so we went and tracked her down and talked with her and she is a really sweet girl. She talked about how she knows that going back to church will help her do good things and recover fully. I guess she has had some cool experiences with prayer recently that reminded her how wonderful the gospel is. So that's cool! Her name is Emily.

Remember the Kings? The people we made the cheesecake for. The people who want to go to the temple. The super wonderful couple who I love and adore so much? They have been doing awesome! He has cut back on smoking so much and they have been praying together and reading the Book of Mormon together everyday still. So it's been super good. Well on Friday Sister King told us that she has to go to prison on the 26th for 1-3 years because she never paid for her DWI from 9 years ago. (That was the same reason she was in jail for 3 days before but it was for the court case that time). I cried. It was so sad. I will miss her so much. President said I can write her letters but I am just so sad about it. The Kings are the best. 

Let me just explain Crazy Beth again since you probably don't remember(and I don't know what I told you already). So she is known by missionaries as an "angry woman" so we talked to the branch president and mission leader and they described how she screams and yells and chews out all the missionaries. So we went to her house expecting to get yelled at and now we love going over there. She is so hilarious its great.

But anyway, her and her daughter don't have a good relationship (like restraining order and all) but we just recently started visiting both of them and they both ask if we visit the other and we say "we try to visit all our members but everything is confidential" and then they said "okay don't tell her you have seen me or that we talked or anything, got it?" And they have the same hand motions and facial expressions and eyes. 

Anyway, on Saturday we went to sister Beth's for lunch and I was wearing my necklace that has a key on it. When we were leaving she asked where I got it from. I said I wasn't sure and that maybe my mom gave it to me. She said "is it the key to her heart?" And I said "no I think it's just a key" and she said "no I bet it's the key to her heart. I bet when you were born it unlocked her heart. Ask her. I bet that is why." I said okay I'd ask. So mom, do I have the key to your heart? :) haha

On Sunday we went back to sister Beth's because she wanted to give us coupons. (Pretty much she loves us because she can act like our mom. She feeds us, yells at us, gives us advice, and gives us coupons.) anyway, she lost her little blue towel and was so mad about it. So we asked if we could pray with her to find it. She said "be my guest, I pray so much that God has an answering machine for me. The floor is yours. If you find it then I'll believe God answers all prayers." So, if you want something to pray for, pray that Sister Beth will find her little blue towel. But really, do it! Haha 

Sacrament meeting was interesting. The speaker asked the congregation a question and everyone answered back. So that was weird. We had to talk about tithing since people think they can pay tithing by giving eggs to us missionaries, or by doing service, or different things like that. Totally missing the whole point haha so ya we got that settled. Afterwards we had our monthly linger longer pot luck with corned beef and cabbage so that was interesting as always. It was good though and everyone brought food this time. 

Guess what! Next week we get to go to the TEMPLE again!! On Saturday! Because a member is getting endowed and our branch is having a temple day and since it's such a small branch we have permission to go with them! Yay yay yay! So exciting! 

So back to zone conference. We had a kickoff for the new Easter video! It is SO good. I cried a little. The Spirit was so strong. It starts March 28th and will go until the next Christmas one comes out. We got pass along cards for it and all that good stuff. Only sad thing is that since missionaries are all off FB for now, we won't be able to share it on there right away. So that means YOU have to! That's right. It's awesome. I'll remind you about it in a couple weeks :) it is called BecauseHeLives. 

Something funny that president said... He was talking about making sure we are being consecrated, focused, and appropriate while working together and he said "Elders, your jokes aren't funny!! The sisters only laugh out of pity for you, so don't get any ideas!" Hahaha so true. It was great. 

Oh also at the zone conference the doctor for the mission came with his wife. They cover a lot of he missions over here. But guess where they are from! Huntington Beach! So president brought them to talk to me. It's like he thinks I lived there or something...  I guess he use to be the bishop of the pacific shores ward too (well when it was Huntington Beach 1st). So I told him you guys are in that ward now and they thought that was cool. Their last name is Braithwaite I believe and they have been on their mission here for about 10 months. (I believe they said they also lived on balboa island for a little I think, and they know the bishop right now. So ya, small world.

BIBLE JOKE TIME! (Sorry if I already did these ones) 
1. At what time of day was Adam created?
2. Who was the best financier in the Bible? 

ANSWERS:
1. A little before Eve.
2. Noah. He floated his stock [animals] while the whole world was in liquidation.

We have been given so much. This world was created for us to learn and grow. We are to find true happiness here as we do our best to progress towards God. However it is important that we make sure we worship the creator rather than the created. We always need to put Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ first before anything else. That includes media, working out, school, sports, food, books, music, etc. where are you giving your time? Are you spending as much time studying the scriptures and exercising your spirits as you are playing sports or working out and exercising your bodies? We are so lucky to have all we do, we just need to make sure we prioritize and do things correctly. 

I love you all! Have a fabulous week! 

Love, 
Sister Tanner <3

GUESS HOW HAPPY I AM????


Hello! This week has been great! We are really picking it up with our teaching and consecration so it's been awesome! On Sunday we only had one hour of church again and nearly died getting home because the roads were so bad. It didn't stop snowing all day. I think it snowed another foot or so.

Let me just start off by saying that today we went to the temple!!!! Yaya which of course means we are in the city right now!! Yay yay yayyyy! Guess how happy I am? VERY! 

Last week on Wednesday night the Primary kids made us pizza! It was so cute. They brought us in handwritten menus they made asking what toppings we wanted and then after our meeting was over we went in and they seated us and then served us and then came and ate with us. It was fun. It's awesome being a missionary because I remember how fun it was to write to missionaries and now I am one.

Thursday we had our big meeting at the temple chapel. It was awesome. There were SO many tender mercies I received that day just telling me that God loves me and is mindful of me. It was probably the most amazing day of my entire mission. It started off with the conference. We ended up having about 5 hours of instruction from the general authorities with a 20 minute break in the middle. And then we had lunch/dinner after. They talked about a lot of things during the meeting and the spirit was so strong. It was absolutely amazing. I wish I could really explain it better, but I can't. So I'm sorry.

We talked about repenting, refreshing and restarting for everything in missionary work. It was a little bit about iPads but not much. We did get two new booklet things that are drafts but we are using them anyway for now.  Elder Evans told us that Elder Ballard says Missionaries and their mission presidents make covenants to serve together in the preexistence. That is why it is so easy to follow them. I love it. He also talked about repentance and how now is the chance to start over and be better. One thing I really like is that he said "one who does wrong may be disappointed in himself. But the Savior is NOT disappointed in ANYONE of them that seeks to REPENT." It's so true.

After our big meeting in the city we came out of the temple and I looked around as my heart ached just a bit. I was SO happy to be there but missed it SO much. It really is my home. As we started crossing the street towards the subway I said a little prayer in my head asking that I would be able to see a family from the ward or at least someone I knew, and i said "in particular the Buckners would be nice" and then Literally about 30 seconds later one of the Buckner kids walked across the sidewalk and it was the most exciting thing ever! His jaw dropped when he saw me and I wanted so badly to hug the kid but of course I didn't (missionary rule).  He's like a little brother to me now. He was excited to see me too especially because he was the only kid not home when I went to tell them bye. Everyone we were with were so confused. They were all like "what just happened? You guys exploded" hahaha it was definitely an Instant answer to my prayer showing me Gods love for me. He knows me and knows what I need. It was perfect. Literally, it made me SO happy.

Later that night we got back to our car where our parking was 3 hours overdue and I was really scared because I would have to pay for the ticket. So I prayed and prayed and we got back, No ticket. It was awesome!

Then on the way home, Megan (she was a new investigator we started teaching two or three weeks ago) called us! It was great because two days after we taught her the restoration she stopped answering her phone and she was never home and pretty much dropped off the face of the earth. So we were bummed because that happens a lot. But she called us and told us that her electricity was out at her house but that it would be back on and she wanted us to come over! So that was awesomeee.

The entire day was just filled with tender mercies that showed how much God loves me. It was an amazing day!

On Friday we had interviews with President Morgan which is always awesome but way too short. We had a long but great training with the APs too, so that was good. and of course we took an interview selfie with President because we always do. After that we went to this new families house to teach them. It's a dad and his two kids, one is 9 and one is 7. They have been taught once in Middletown and were found from a member in Middletown. They are Soo awesome though! I'll tell more about them under Sunday.

Saturday we met with fun lady Beth again. She is hilarious and my comp does so good with her. Sister Quackenbush tells her she speaks false doctrine all the time and I love it, she's becoming a great missionary. We also got to meet with Megan and we set a baptismal Date with her for March 28th! But it will probably have to be pushed back to April 11th but still awesome because she is really feeling the spirit. She has been keeping all her commitments and She told us that she prayed and she really feels like God sent us. Super solid and awesome. I love it.

So back to that new family. The dads name is Justo. We met with them again on Sunday right after sacrament! We taught the restoration and gospel of Jesus Christ which hardly happens all in one but it was so good! We also set a baptism goal with them. Hopefully it'll be March 28th or April 11th! The little girl (Victoria) wants to get baptized sooner and she is so ready and knowledgeable, the little boy (JJ) wants to get baptized as soon as he turns 8 because he prayed and asked God when he should be baptized and God said "whenever he feels like it" haha he is so cute! The dad is just going through a hard time trying to get full custody of the kids right now so he is stressed and I'm not sure if he will be ready then or not. We are praying for it
though! They are just such a great little family.

On Monday we met with that cute kid Jorson that I told you about last week. We talked with him and his mom. So we got to his house and he invited us in (he is 9 by the way) and he sits us down on the couch and says "okay so what's first?" It was adorable. And then he starts asking questions like "who is God?" "What does being Christian mean?" "Who was the first man born on earth?" "Who was the first man born in America?" Just stuff like that haha and then we split and I was talking to his mom since she was just listening and watching from the kitchen and sister Quackenbush was talking to Jorson but pretty much they are from Puerto Rico and are adorable. 
She has a hard time with English but doesn't want the Spanish elders so we will work with her as best we can. We gave them a Book of Mormon in both English and Spanish. I gave Jorson the one from the primary kids since I was waiting for the perfect opportunity, and he loved it. He thought it was so cool that it came from California haha..so I'll try and write the primary kids next pday since today was a busy day.

Last night was another ice storm and snow storm so of course, grounded
again. When is winter going to be over? I'm over it! Haha

We had a really good lesson with sister Mccreary yesterday though. She is slowly making small changes in the questions she asks and the phrases she uses so that is awesome. We talked about chastity and temple marriage and she loved it so much.

Anyway, it's been an awesome week. I just wish you could all have these experiences with me so we could talk about them for the rest of our lives.... Haha I LOVE it.

This week I have been thinking about how we are never alone. It's an amazing thing. In D&C 121:9 it says "Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands." And to go along with that there is a quote in the new era that says "Remember that you are never alone. Therefore, do nothing you wouldn’t do in the presence of angels." I just love knowing that as we do our best even when nobody is physically looking, we are always being guided and helped by angels who we will get to meet one day. There are constantly angels watching over us and whether those Angels are our ancestors, friends, strangers, or ancestors of those whom we are to
teach, they want us to do the best we can at all times.

I hope you have a wonderful week! I love you so much!

Love,
