What on earth will I write about after this 30 days?
I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Another Moment [day 21]
Ok. I have a hard time thinking of good moments to share with the rest of you, but there is a book sitting right next to me so it helped me think of this moment.
I had been anticipating "this moment" for a while now.
My best friend told me she was working on my birthday present.
And I was working on hers.
Her birthday came a few days before mine so she didn't have to wait as long.
But the anticipation was killing me.
Secret phone calls, secret messages, secret conversations, I don't enjoy secrets.
Especially when I know they are being made and I'm not allowed to get out of the car because she has to go do something that has to do with this present.
I was beyond excited to see what it was.
FINALLY December 15th came.
I get to school and she tells me it's not ready.
So I have to wait. Even longer.
We had a choir concert that night and she told me she'd probably have it ready to give me after the concert.
I did not make her suffer this much.
I was dying to know what this was.
So I waited all day.
Then the concert came.
It was about ten o'clock and I was still waiting.
I decided to take a quick nap on the couch.
She finally decided to show up at about 11:00.
Basically the end of my birthday.
But it was so worth the wait.
The present just has a little red ribbon wrapped around it.
It was a book.
I open it up and there are pictures.
Letters from my close friends.
My seminary teacher.
All the SBOs.
I don't cry at a whole lot of things.
I definitely cried when I read this.
It was the greatest present I have ever received.
And it was the greatest moment when I read all of the letters.
So if you want to do something nice for someone,
Write them a letter.
If you want to do something extraordinarily incredible for someone,
get everyone to write them a letter and compile it into a book.
They'll treasure it forever.
