Officially Elder Paynter

Today I said goodbye to my best friend ever. 
He is leaving to Brazil tomorrow morning to serve the Lord and the people in Brazil for the next two years.
Its rough, but so happy.
I couldn't be more proud of the boy.
I wouldn't choose for him to be anywhere else doing anything else. 
I read a talk today about a lady who described it as "being sad but feeling so happy."
Thats EXACTLY how I feel.
I am sad because I have counted on this boy for the last five years of my life.
He has been the center of everything and it will definitely be an adjustment. 
No more late night phone calls. No more waking up to his cute voice. No more vent sessions. No more late night drives and perfect dates. 

But thats all okay.
He is doing exactly what he is supposed to be doing and thats what makes it all so happy.
So many perfect memories to hold on to, letters to send and receive, life changing stories to be told, and countless blessings to be felt. 
I am so proud of you, best friend. 
I can't wait to hear all about it for the next two years.
You are my favorite person in the whole world.
Thanks for everything you have done for me and taught me.
I love you more than words can describe!
Now go serve those lucky people!
-Your biggest fan
