50 days & counting.

this bugger is leaving the united states for two years in 

exactly 50 days from today. life with out him will be 

absolutely strange. all though he has been at BYU this past

 year, i still got to see & talk to him often. words can't 

describe how proud of him i am. these will be the best two

 years of his life, i just know it. i started a countdown today 

on the side of my blog {check it out} for the next 50 days i 

will leave a reason of why i love him. this countdown is 

coming so quick. but im beyond excited. the people in chile 

need him way more than i do, & they're just waiting for his 

messages. i miss him so much, & it just a few short weeks 

he's coming HOME. it's about time, let me tell you. so proud of you....

elder heyman.

50 days, 50 reasons.

  3. That is super exciting that he is going on a mission especially to chile. That is where my husband went too. He went to Concepcion, Chile and loved it. Good luck to your missionary!! And I know how you feel when they are getting ready to leave feels like time can't slow down enough. At least that's how I felt. But while he is gone time will go by fast, with a lot of letters and packages always make it fun!!

    1. did he really go there? wow, thats awesome! he's so excited to go, i'll have to tell him your hubby loved it there! it doesn't really seem real that he's leaving yet. im scared of that one day it's going to hit me.

  4. Oh my gosh, this is the sweetest thing!!!
    I am proud of him too! Congratulations!
    I can't wait to see all of your reasons!
    Have a great rest of your day!

    1. hey, thanks! im pumped to do this! have a great rest of your day :)

  5. I found your blog a few weeks ago...courtesy of my best pal Calea! :) She is a keeper and had nothing but great things to say about you!
    Anyways, I sent off my missionary on wednesday. It has been freaking crazy. But it is one of the most spiritual experiences ever. I don't know if you will go to his setting apart or not, but regardless, be his support. These boys need us to be strong for them...but that doesn't mean you can't cry. Because crying helps. Trust me. I've done my fair share in the last couple of days. But one thing I took from this experience, is that I have felt closer to Christ and to God than I have in a long time. Everyday I have felt their comfort, and their love for me as their daughter and sister envelop me when i feel so alone. Pray often. Pray for him, and you, and have faith that what ever is meant to happen will. Find comfort in words of the scriptures, and music (go check out Hilary Weeks new album, specifically the songs "Beautiful Heartbreak", and "Stand Still"), and remember what a great thing it is he will be doing. If you aren't close with his family, try to become close. They can be a huge source of comfort as well. And last, don't look at it as "the end" look at it as the beginning of a new chapter in your story. :) Also, remember that you WILL be okay. The sun will keep rising, and setting. And everyday you spend away from him, is another day closer to when you will get to see him again! Missions are a blessing...for everyone involved. :)
