One thing she saw me do is serve a mission. It remains to this day one of the best things I ever did, and I have always hoped that she would choose to go too someday. You can imagine my elation when she told me a while ago that she was thinking of going. Then when she said she was going. Then again when she finished and turned int her paperwork to become a full time missionary.
My happiness was overflowing today when her call came!
She was on the phone with our sister Maryn when she checked the mail today. To her astonishment, her call was in the mail! She called me in a panic, breathing so hard and sounding so hysterical I could hardly understand what she said. I gathered that she was coming over because she got her mission call. Our cousin Kelsey would bring her over. I screamed so loud I woke up Mirah. Oops.
Then while I waited for her to arrive, my sister Maryn called. We agreed to get on Google Hangout, and once we got on with Mom and Karl, the snowball was rolling and it caught all of us in its path. In the end, everyone of our immediate family were there:
Albuquerque New Mexico Mission, Spanish Speaking. She is reporting to the MTC on May 1st.
She couldn’t be happier.
I mean look at her face!
Congratulations Sister Pipkin! You are going to be amazing!
