I must warn all the missionary moms out there - the MTC "drop off" is like going through a fast food drive in - except that you aren't ordering and picking up junk food - but rather dropping off your most precious sons and/or daughters.
Another mother was next to me dropping her son off, sobbing because the 'host' elder said that he couldn't take a pic. of she and her son (?) and so I took it and gave her a comfort hug. Ten minutes later I saw her at the same gas station, hunched over her steering wheel, continuing to sob. I rapped on her window and she got out and we hugged again - this can only happen in Utah - anywhere else and they think you have a mental illness....
I have been praying non-stop since yesterfay and sending positive feelings for him. For those of you that may wonder if I am overprotective and a worrier - the answer is "yes".
To my wonderful sister-in-law and her beautiful family who put up with my emotions for five days - I love you !
