DOS!!!!!!!

Hi all!!! We are down to DOS...TWO...Yes....TWO days until my daughter gets home from her mission for our church in Paraguay. Today is her last full day to serve. She will start traveling home tomorrow afternoon and then literally 24 hours later she will be HOME! We are soooo SUPER EXCITED!! My oldest daughter and her children are coming tomorrow so they will be here when she arrives, too! I can't even begin to describe the happiness I feel when we are all together! Yippee!!! I hope YOU are feeling my JOY, too! Leave a comment for a chance for your name to go into the drawing for a prize to be given when the countdown is done (and it's almost DONE!)!

Here is a picture to share:



For the quote of the day, here is her last letter home...it was super short because she didn't have any time to write:

OOhhhhhhhh man!!! Well I have about 2 seconds to write, but last week was the BEST week EVER!!! I can't wait to tell yall all about it. Man I love these people and I am going to miss them like crazy, I've been crying all week long and we are about to leave to Luque for my despedida and I'm going to cry more. Oh man. I can't believe it's really time. But I'm so EXCITED to see yall!!! It'll be so fun!! Thanks sooo much for all your emails, I wish I could email you indvidually but I can't, but no big deal, we'll see each other soon! I love yall so much!! Thanks so much for everything. THe gospel is SO TRUE and really, I have felt so much HAPPINESS on my mission. The best year and a half of my life. Love it! Love yall. See ya soon! Be good!!!
Love,
Hermanita Nelson

Can you feel her joy and happiness?! I hope you are feeling this in your life, too!
Hugs,
Cheryl

  3. Oh Cheryl, I can imagine what you are feeling. when we wnet overseas it was so exciting, but not being able to see my parents was hard. After 1omonths since the kids and I had left the states we got to take our leave and I was so young and so happy to be going home. I will enver forget that feeling as I did it over and over. However your daughter has been gone longer and has been doing great work! I know you are so proud. Happy homecoming!
