Sleep? What is this new thing? Is it tasty?

It's just before I'm to leave to the MTC and the rest of my family is still asleep. Probably because I woke up three hours before we actually needed to leave, but it still amuses me. I was up later than I would have liked last night getting together a surprise for my family, but because it's a surprise and my dear parents will read this post, I'm not going to say what it was. I'll leave that for them later on down the road, if they so choose.

My bags have all been packed (mostly) and the thank-you letters have all been written (almost) and I am ready to get on the road (completely). I still feel like this is just the calm before the storm, in a way. I've never been nervous about my own life before; events in it, sure, but never my life itself. I guess this is because I've never had such a big change such as this before. Where is my life going to lead after this? What is it going to be like while I'm away from home? Am I just being a silly adult again?

I dislike doubts, but those have been going through my head for a while now, and while I don't have any of the answers, I know that my Father in Heaven does, and I will just have to trust him to take care of me and my family while I am gone. I'm so excited to be finally on my way, but scared to death at the prospect. But worrying about it isn't going to change the fact that I will be on my way regardless, so it's time to put on a brave face again and face this task head on. I'll worry once there's something I can do about it all.

To all my friends and family who are supporting me, Thank You. Your support is what is going to partially get me through this. The other bit will be God, but your role isn't insignificant. So thank you. This will probably be the last post typed up by me, but the rest will be my dear parents, so if you see any tyops, give them grief!

(See what I did there? I misspelled "typos".... It's supposed to be funny. Oh, never mind)

I love you all, and will see you again in, hopefully, two years!
