I realize that thousands of moms have sent their sons on missions and it is totally what I would hope he would do at this point in his life but how could it all happen so fast? Johnathon turned his papers into the Stake President on Sunday. President Brewer will be sending them in on the 16th. Now we wait. Tonight Johnathon told me that he could wait to open his letter until whenever Samantha is home after he gets it. It is very good that Johnathon can wait. But I won't be able to. We'll call her on the phone and she can be in on all the action courtesy of Qwest.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. That smile will take him far.
