My mind is exploding with so many thoughts of the "possible" future...
Last week I filled out paperwork to apply Jesse for the foreign services. I know, the test isn't even until June so there's no rush in deciding if this is the right path for us.
The strangest part of this is that I have felt (quite strongly) that we are being called to somewhere else in the world. There is a HUGE part of me that wants to ignore it...you know the part that thinks about cleanliness, vaccinations (eww...would we have to give those to our kids?) and parasites. That's the pessimist in me...
On the other hand, the optimist in me is thinking of all the adventures, opportunities and friends that await us on the other side of the world. The teaching and learning experiences. The Gospel. News sights and smells. Exotic foods. Exciting cultural changes!
I also keep thinking of Jesse. Would he enjoy being a diplomat? Absolutely!! Would He enjoy being all over the world? I really don't know. He liked Guatemala, but it was also pretty hard at times.
Last night I woke up and thought, "No Way! I am not going to be thousands of miles away from my family!!" The crazy thing is I woke up this morning and realized I already am! I guess living in South Idaho has spoiled me a little. I get to see in-law's regularly and have even had several siblings visit me. They didn't do that when we were in Guatemala or North Idaho, so really it wouldn't be much different than that.
Then I was searching this morning and saw this...
Now all I can think is,
"Yes! Send ME!!"
I am just dying to know where you would want to go...inspire me! haha!
Seriously, if you could be posted anywhere in the world where would it to be?
