Hello, From the Bobbysoxer!
As I’ve contemplated a way to write this post, many things have come into my mind. One of the things that I’ve often thought is that you may not believe that it’s actually me over here! You have, in fact, been getting not so consistent automated posts for about a year. I’m really sorry about that by the way. But it is true, it is me, I am back!
Well, it is an interesting turn my life has taken. I have returned home from serving my mission 6 months early due to some health reasons. I have not been home very long, but have also been a little bit hesitant to get back into the blogging scene. Partly because I think that I’ve been away from it longer than I was ever in it! But, I’m here, and it’s good to be with all of you again. As I’ve thought about it, I think I will allow the posts that are set to be published at the first of each month continue to be published. I was reading over them the other day and I actually really like them. So we’ll keep that going.
I have to say, coming home from serving a mission has been quite the experience! Mostly because my life was 100% gospel every day, and now I’m transitioning back into normal life. But, wow! It was a truly incredible experience, one that I don’t regret one second of and will be eternally grateful for. It is unbelievable to me how much the experience truly changed me, many things about me, but into simply a better person overall than I was. Serving others and teaching them about Jesus Christ gave me such a different perspective of life. It gave me such an appreciation for all I have been blessed with, and it filled me with a greater desire to help make the world a better place.
As of right now, I’ve no master plan on how I think I might do that. But I do want to take it on wholeheartedly, and swan dive into a life that God wants me to live and a life that will bless the lives of those around me. I want to create and inspire and spread peace and joy in any way that I can.
And what about you? What has happened in everybody’s lives this past year? I hope good things! I will also say this: it is so, so fabulous to be back on Singing About Sinatra to celebrate with y’all! As this year is the absolutely magnificent Sinatra Centennial, we’ve a lot to catch up on!
