Hey Everyone -
So I am not really sure how to say this, but I am home now. Actually, I have been home for about 4 weeks now (sorry for the SUPER late update). I arrived home in Maryland on Dec. 17th in the evening and was immediately released by President Cook (my stake president). I was sent home for medical reasons that the doctors believed needed immediate attention. That being said, I was honorably released and I have the option of returning in 6 months if: 1) the doctors approve and 2) I prayerfully decide that going out on a mission is right for me. I haven't decided yet what I will do, but I am planning on staying home AND going back on a mission. This means that I anticipate my recovery and assume that I will feel ready to go back out, but if that doesn't happen I am also making plans to attend BYU in April.
I apologize for getting this post out so late because I know many of you read this and I don't have the opportunity to see all of you in person (especially my missionary buddies! I love you guys!) I just wanted to let you know where I have been and what has been happening.
As for my life right now, I am a percussion instructor at Urbana High School and I am living the "good" life. I have had an amazing amount of support from family and friends that welcomed me home with hugs, smiles, and words of encouragement. I am so thankful for them. Thank you everyone for the support you have given me the past 7 months and if you see me, holler at me!
