Happy Thanksgiving! 26 November 2012

Happy Late Thanksgiving!!! 
Well something very funny was that even though that they don`t celebrate thanksgiving here, I didn’t break the tradition of eating turkey! Hahaha Sister Norma, our next door neighbor, gave us turkey sandwiches at the end of the day, and I still ate turkey. I didn’t realize it until a little bit later... hahaha but I still am going strong with the turkey tradition. Well as you requested dad, I will give you my first year evaluation. :) 
Well I feel I have grown tremendously! I have been able to cultivate a lot of leadership skills and how to work in unity with my leaders and companions. It has been super hard but I have become more humble in listening to others and following their counsel. For you dad, you know that it is super hard that I listen to someone telling me what to do and agree. But I have become a lot better at that and handling criticism. I have grown to love my enemies as well. That was super difficult before, but now it is a lot better and I have grown to become better at showing charity to my enemies or when people reject us. I have learned a ton!!! And I still have a lot to learn in this next year!
I am so grateful for my heavenly father and that he has sent me here to the family where I am right now and I am sooo grateful for everything that my family has done for me. I am grateful for all of my friends as well. I have the best friends in the whole world and I love every one of you very much. I am grateful for the privilege to serve God for 2 years and I am sooo grateful for all the blessings that he has given me. 
Have a very great holiday season! I love you all very much! Send me cards and stuff!! :)
