Here's a few fun suggestions for a Mother's Day call/skype ;)
~Send more pictures...and WHEN ARE YOU COMING HOME!? Just kidding! I'll try not to mention that I can't wait til October!
~"I FREAKING LOVE YOU KID!!!!"
~Would you pleeeeaaasee stop taking pictures of all the animals that you find in Australia? The snake wrap around your body almost gave me a heart attack!!!!
~ THANK YOU for the quick thinking that saved your life when the semi hit you!!!
~ I'm going to fill him in on what he's missing. I will ask him everything that comes to mind about what I'm missing. It will all happen really unscripted and organically. I can't wait for my mother's day date with my son.
~I don't ask questions - we just sit and listen to her energetic love for the Gospel!! Can't wait to hear her voice!!!
~Where are my Picture's and you could write more LOL
~Did you feel the last earthquake? Are you prepared if there is a big one and have they trained you in any of your missionary meetings what to do?
~ Piddle after we both cry. I'm gonna scream. I so love you.
~I'm not worried at all about what we will talk about!
We are never at a loss of things to talk about!
~ I want the details of day to day life, so I can picture him on his mission.
~We love you and are SO proud of you! ( No crying allowed.)
~ My son is naturally not much of a talker. So I imagine it will be hard to keep him talking.
~Just going to let her talk the entire time.
~So how was your visit to the Urgent Care center and next time call your mother's phone not your Dad's!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~This is what I am going to say.." Danielito te amo!!!!
~ Are you using your mosquito repellent? How many times have you had Dengue Fever?
~ I really want him and his companions to sing a song to me in Spanish!
~It is all mumble through the tears !
~How is dorm living (he has 3 other elders in his apt)? Are you eating anything besides otter pops and PB&J? How much do you love feeling the spirit every single day? How often do you miss your mom? ????
~With my other missionaries, we have always had a family prayer before we hang up. Our missionary offers the prayer in whatever language they are speaking. I usually don't cry until then...floodgates!
~I'm so very proud of you!!!
~ I want my gift to be his testimony in Portuguese. I don't care if I don't understand a word of it. I will feel it.
~ Thank you for your example!
~ I will ask her what its like teaching out in the desert in old west ghost towns. Mostly I just want to tell her how proud I am of her and that I love her.
~I LOVE YOU!!!!!!
.....and then "Good-bye"....for now. Only 227 days till Christmas!
