New Beginnings

The past month has seen many lasts in my life -- the last Christmas in my home of 19 years (even though it was a fake Christmas celebrated in September), the last Sunday dinner cooked and enjoyed with my children and grandchildren in our home, the last time I slept in my room or showered in my bathroom. The last time I drove away from that driveway.
Now I'm enjoying some firsts -- we're the first couple to ever stay in this particular room at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. I'm the first person to ever have used this shower. I enjoyed singing with an army of missionaries in the MTC choir for the first time. I was the first person to use the eliptical machine in the basement of this building. My husband and I taught our first lesson to an investigator as missionaries (even though he was a fake one for training purposes).
Life if full of firsts and lasts. The key is to enjoy the journey.
