I know that it has been a while since I've written a letter, suffice it to say that I have been working hard. I want to thank with all of my heart those that have supported me these two years. It has made the difference.
I want to ask a favor of everyone. After two years, it is easy to imagine that I won´t be the same, please don´t expect that I´ll be exactly as I was when I left. That probably won´t turn out the best. Although I´m the same me, I have grown a lot, I've learned a lot, and frankly it would be a tragedy were I to continue the same as I was. I don´t want to be the same, ever again. I want every day to be an improvement.
It might be a bit of a shock for me getting back for (other than the cold) I have been accustomed to something far different. I ask that I be given to time, I´ll get back to good working order. If I´m weird I´m sorry haha. Just be patient with me, it´ll be a big change.
I ask for you to help me, help me to adapt, help me to continue my good habits, of discipline, obedience, and diligence. Help me to grow. I am excited to come home, excited to see you all, goodness gracious me to I miss you.
Lastly I ask for you to recognize that some decisions are mine to make. I will certainly need much advice and counsel, but there are some things that I have got to do on my own.
I love you all, I can´t wait to see you.
