Staring the Bull in the Eyes

For the past couple of days I feel as though I am staring a bull in the eyes.  As a missionary we spend two years away from movies, television, dating, family, friends, and other such interests and go out to a place that the Lord has asked us to go and spread his message and serve his children.  Looking at two years at the beginning is a long time.  I now have 4 months left as a full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I find myself asking this question, "Where did the last two years go?"  So there is my bull, the end of the greatest two years I've ever had.  I cherish each moment I have with all of the people I have met out here and all the friendships that I have gained.  You all will never be forgotten.  I love being a missionary and I will give it my hardest these last few months!

As I have pondered the beautiful moments I am reminded of this video.  How many times do we forget the small things in life?  We need to live each moment as if it could be a cherished memory for the ages.  "For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to met God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to preform their labors."  (Alma 34:32)
