Letter #76

Dear family!

So This is the last email I will write to you as a missionary..........
I feel like I should have some huge story or words of wisdom...
But I don't

I honestly don't know what to say.
i honestly cant believe it. It just does not feel real!?!  I really feel like I'm just moving to a new area. I haven't realized yet that new area is going to be home. Well, like I said last week it is completely bittersweet. I am going to be smiling through the tears!  I am so excited to see everyone! It is finally sinking in... well kinda!
Packing does that to someone. I don't think it will truly sink in until I am on the plane! :/ Maybe not even until I am able to see everyone!?!  Packing... have I said before how much I hate packing!? Well if I haven't... I hate packing!! I don't know how I got so much stuff.  In just over this short amount of time, and every move you just get more and more stuff. I have been trying to pack a little here and there every night so I would not be packing my whole last p-day in Florida :) I have gotten some of it done, but not all. Oh yeah, and I'll be sending home a package with my books and letters home today. Hopefully that will help with the weight, but I should be getting home before my package! :)  Crazy! 

Sorry this letter will be so short and kinda uneventful. hahhaa I had a pretty good last week. It was full of a lot of goodbyes though! :( I am not good with goodbyes... we also did a lot of walking and talking to people.  I've gotten a pretty good "Mary Jane tan" from that! hahah We got 2 new investigators! :) So it has been all worth it!

I spoke in church this week... So I was wondering if I could just do the same talk! It was only 5 minutes!?! haha . I spoke on "How to create a Gospel Sharing home" :) Not much has changed. I still don't enjoy speaking. Sadly not one of the gifts I have been given...
I have learned if you don't have anything else to say. then you just bear your testimony... So I want you guys to know how much I have loved my mission! And how thankful that I was to be able to serve! I love this Gospel. I don't know where I would be without it! I am so thankful to be born into this faith and have it in my life. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the father and his son. I also know that he was called as a prophet to restore this church. I know that this is Christ's Church resorted again on the earth!  I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God! I know that my Heavenly Father knows me personally, and that he loves me! I love you guys so much, and I can't wait to see each and everyone of you again!
Love you guys so much!
God be with you until we meet again! :) ...very soon
Sister Sharon Andersen

When I told Landon there were 5 days left he said 
"Hey I am FIVE years OLD!"
SO I let him pick the picture...
