I'm going to direct you over to two other blogs.
First, my blog (blogofaubrey.wordpress.com) has a wonderfully delicious recipe on it. I cried it was so good. I also cried from excitement! If you're feeling mission sick, or just plain old rotten, food can help you get back to feeling connected. I wouldn't have believed it if it hadn't happened to me.
No, this isn't emotional eating. Although that is a popular hobby in the mission field, this was my way of connecting with my beloved mission land. The recipe is quite different and it didn't taste as good, but it tasted good enough. It's like reliving a memory!
Don't believe me? Try it yourself. I might even make you some if you ask nicely.
Second, this is my friend's blog. She use to pay me to be her friend, but that's another story. She is an incredible human being! All who know her love her. She is sweet, genius, and down to earth. Pretty much, if someone like her gets a medical release, it can happen to anyone. I strongly encourage you to read it!

I got to meet up with this friend for a little bit last week. A group of early return missionaries have started a pioneering group. Pioneer as in first of it's kind, not the trekking across the nation. One of them is from my mission! They meet on Thursday nights in Pleasant Grove, Utah. They call it an institute class for early return missionaries and their parents, but it's more like a bunch of crazy (in a good way) kids helping each other out. Like in the MTC! REmember those long hours pend with your district? It's like that. What an inspiring group of people! They're testimonies are strong and so is their faith. I'm very proud of them and the work they are doing. Atta go, kids!
They were featured on KSL. Follow this link to hear more about them. I met both of the ERMs featured. Kenzie is a friend of a friend and I briefly met her at TRC. Three of us (sisters from my mission) were present Thursday. Both those sisters are absolutely incredible!
There's enough here for you to ponder while I study for my next anatomy test. Happy surfing!
