as you can see i had a wonderful Christmas . i was able to be in the beat. Which is a big dance. i loved it! got to talk to the family and that was priceless. so many things going on and getting excited about this week. it will be slow because people go and visit family and won't be back until the new year. But we can do service and have fun with that. A sweet sister in Laura passed away on christmas . she was so sweet i loved her sweet smile and helping her. she will be a blessing in Heaven. so many people and lives i have gotten to touch and I'm so grateful for the love and support by family and friends. thank you for the letters and the packages they really do help when you are missing home. My mom told me there are only about 75 days left on my mission and I'm not ready to leave just yet. i think they will have to carry me on the plane.
until next week love you all and have a great day love Maddie
