Anyway I love you family – Laura

Today I learned why they taught us the things they did. The feeling you get when you realize that you really have to leave these sweet innocent little girls and just go home like everything is the same, is really terrible. A part of my heart is left with those girls, I don’t think I will ever forget the unconditional love they gave me. The lessons we were taught before coming were meant to prepare us to use our time in the best possible way we could, because it really is so short, but I don’t think anyone can really prepare and do everything they really want to without knowing the love for the girls and the heartbreak you feel when you leave. I know I have a few regrets and things I would change, but I know I loved the girls with all of my heart and I tried my hardest to make them feel important, so if that is all I did I still feel like I made a difference. Although I do really miss the food at home and just home in general, I am so happy that I decided to come, because no feeling can compare to the feeling of pure love I have felt here.I will really miss my sweet girls.

Oh and to my family, I miss you all so much, you have no idea how excited I am to come home to you! I love you all!

Oh and I miss Oliver I am sure he is driving you crazy because I bet he misses me too. (My kitty) Here we aren’t allowed to pet any of the cats. Thanks for the twitter message dad! hah last time Nick told me you commented on my blog I started crying because It made me happy to know you missed me and were thinking of me. Anyway I love you family!!! I am excited to see you all on Saturday! P.S. Bring my phone to the airport haha I need to catch up on everything at home!

Much Love- Laura
