The many decisions of life.

From the constant reminders of my mother that it has been much to long since my last up-date. I guess it is about time to add another post. 

My papers are in and I "should" be getting my call on Thursday. You can all be expecting the phone call with the exciting news of where I will be serving. I must have to say it has been quite the emotional week for me, turning my papers in and David returning to Rexburg. (If girls aren't emotional enough! This is the cherry on top.) I went to Salt Lake to surprise David at the airport. I was a little (okay a lot) nervous to meet his German grandma.. but to much relief she talked and talked when the boys were getting all the things loaded. She said that I should take her advice to not let go of David and let him put a ring on my finger. After we left she called Davids Mother, "That girlfriend of his is such a Doll. They just get along so well, don't they? She is just a sweetheart." This both shocked David and his mother, since she is normally not so open and loving to people she does not know. On the drive home David and I had a lot of time to talk. And it ended up with David telling me if he had it his way he would want me to stay home and marry him. Thankfully the week before I had talked to Grandpa about serving a mission and getting married. I love David, I would love to marry him. But I know I am suppose to serve a mission. That night it was hard to say I wanted to go, because really I want to stay and get married. One of the many things that Grandpa said was that if Love is right now, it will be right when I get back. I have thought so much about this, and I know that even if David gets married when I am gone that my husband will still be waiting for me. I am at peace and filled with true joy knowing that I am doing the will of my Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for my Mom, Grandpa P. and Aunt Jen. I really don't know what I would have done without all the many talks I have had with them about serving a mission.

Aimee, We have prayed ever sincer your papers went in that the Apostles will be inspired to send you where the Lord knows will be the BEST FOR YOU!
Yes, Grampa Petersen is right, eternal love is forever, and the Lord is in charge.
We're also hoping your call comes this Thursday...but sometimes it takes longer than that. We're anxious to know where the Lord is sending you for the next 18 months of your young life.
Love, Grama Mission (Petersen)
