I've been dreading/anticipating this post for a while now. There's so much I want to say about my beautiful sister but to save myself from tears, I think I'll just keep that all for my journal and make this short and sweet...
After years of trying and fighting medical issues, Brooke left for her mission last Wednesday (March 23) and it's such a bitter-sweet feeling. [We had 2 goodbyes.] A very tearful one (mostly on my part) at 5:30 in the morning when I was leaving for work (I thought that was going to be my final goodbye but when my manager saw me walk in with mascara streaming down my face a big puffy eyes she told me to go home and be with my sis :) and a really happy and exciting goodbye dropping her off at the MTC with Nick and Hayley. It was really fun. I'm so so so proud of her and I'm so excited for her to have this new amazing experience for the next 18 months but I know I'm going to miss her too much...I already miss her!
