What I didn't know this time last year

Looking back at this time last year everything has changed

This time last year I had never been to rexburg
I had never met Sooo many of my dear dear friends
I had never taken a college class
I didn't know how much I loved social work
I didn't know I could live on my own
I didn't know amazing BYU idaho is!
I didn't know I could make friends with so many types of people
I sort of knew how hard food is
I didn't know how strong I was
I didn't know I was lactose intolerant
I didn't truly realize how loved I am
I didn't know how it felt to be so weak
I didn't know I would be an aunt
Or how much I would love that sweet boy
I did know I wanted to serve a mission
I didn't know I would be doing mission papers this year
Or that I would get my call
I didn't know Indiana was where I would spend the next year and a half
And I had no idea how excited I would be about that
I did and yet learned all over again how mindful the lord is
And how much he loves me
I didn't know I would be going through the temple
I didn't know how much I would grow
I didn't know so much!!!!
I'm so glad I learned all this!

It makes me look at next year
It makes me think what do I face?!?
What don't I know?
How excite ting is it to be able to learn!

There are only a few things I do know about next year
I know I will be a servant of the lord
I know I will Have to rely on God
I know I will be in Indiana
I know that what I put in is what I will get out
I know I will be in the right mission
I know it will be Sooo hard
I know it will be soo worth it
I know that I'm so excited!
Welcome 2013:)
