|Devin with a sugar cookie ghost missionary.|
The thing I had forgotten about missions is how, in some ways, you actually stay closer to your missionary than you did before their mission. Before his mission, Dev and I would go a couple of months between contacts. And when we did see each other, it was often passing hellos inbetween our other activities.
Now I try and write Dev a few times a week. He always writes me at least once a week. I think we know more detail about each other's lives now than we have in about 17 years. And we always say "I love you" in the letters. I am surprised how much I like this. It is making me want to tell everyone I love them at least once a week (well, everyone that I do in fact love). Yikes, this post is getting cheesy.
