Snippets of "The Letter"

Eliza suggested I post a bunch of highlights from the missionary letter I found.  Here they are...I can't wait to hear what you think!
  • Even though we are ten thousand miles apart, we are still getting through the next two years together!  We'll share each other's trials, bear one another's burdens and mourn and comfort each other.
  • Thanks for the list of names! I can't wait to figure out and finalize each childs name.  Basically, we are having LOTS of kids.  I can't wait!
  • Oh, I could go on for hours like this.  I've written too much.  Can you feel my passion?  (He was talking about politics, not their kids names)
  • Do you ever learn about someone in history you can't help but feel a special connection with?  I think if we only lived at the same time we would be best friends - our minds are so compatible.  We understand each other! (talking about Jacob from the Book of Mormon)
  • You are asking if I really want you?  You know I'm not stuck with you.  Couldn't a great guy like me get any other date?  I'll remind you again and I'll remind you a thousand times everyday - I LOVE YOU!  Yes YOU!
  • Next, I've heard it's a good idea to put toilet paper with your food storage.  Most people don't think of it but when disaster strikes, it'll be a disaster!  Just a thought.
  • By the way, I ate a strawberry shake before I licked the stamp.  Can you smell it?  he! he! I love you!
  • I dream of you every night! I can't wait to be with you forever!
  • As a flower is to a bee, as water is to a brooklet, as the sunlight is to a tree, as the muse is to the poet, you are to me.  You are my honey, my living water of peace and passion, my light and my life, my inspiration and meaning.
  • Just look forward to that day when your prince will come rescue you and make you a Queen! 

Your thoughts???

I absolutely love this. It is so hilarious! I need to read the whole thing please. WOW! That is wonderful, some lucky girl! (But it seems a little sophmoric to me.) And besides, he's on a mission! He's supposed to be more focused and not talking about strawberry milkshakes and stamps. Eek! He needs to read the talk "Lock your heart!"

Sorry for the uber long comments- that was seriously a record for me. :S I get carried away with commenting sometimes. I really do like your blog- and I loved that you found that letter! I truly think missionaries don't really know what they're thinking when they're on their missions- lol! At least romantically. :S

You got a lot of the high points except you forgot that he wasn't just talking about jacob. He was talking about Jacob, Nephi and most of the founding fathers. :) LOL!

oh wow, wow....oh wow. Wow. You can't make this stuff up. Wow. Its so incredibly funny, that its almost depressing. My favorite part was the toilet paper advice amidst everything else. This is great, I am glad you found the letter so we could all enjoy it.

Awesome! It makes the missionary letters I wrote while waiting (a.k.a. wasting my life) seem normal, at least I wasn't planing kids names in letters. Thanks for sharing.

Gag me with a spoon! This couple could be heading for a fast engagement and then, divorce? Ha ha ha. Just teasing. They sound so in lust. I loved your newest blog by the way. So true and makes me sad that people get married for all the wrong reasons. Maybe I shouldn't be talking since I was married in 10 months. I am still VERY much happy and in LOVE. Ahh shucks. Thanks for making your blogs so fun to read Rachel! I love reading your thoughts since we are so far away now.
