Change and All That

This week I had to say goodbye (temporarily) to two of these lovely Sisters that I have gotten the chance to serve with. It was awesome getting to serve with Sister Gariby and living with Sister Wall and Sister Araujo. But it's official, I hate goodbyes. I'm just not good at them. But it's alright because I know I will see these people again. It actually reminds me of President Uchtdorf's talk in this past general conference:
 "We Are Not Made for Endings
In light of what we know about our eternal destiny, is it any wonder that whenever we face the bitter endings of life, they seem unacceptable to us? There seems to be something inside of us that resists endings.
Why is this? Because we are made of the stuff of eternity. We are eternal beings, children of the Almighty God, whose name is Endless and who promises eternal blessings without number. Endings are not our destiny.
The more we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more we realize that endings here in mortality are not endings at all. They are merely interruptions—temporary pauses that one day will seem small compared to the eternal joy awaiting the faithful.
How grateful I am to my Heavenly Father that in His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings."
I know that this is true. No matter what we experience in this life, it is only to introduce us to the many wonderful blessings that Heavenly Father has in store for us. We just have to keep looking for His hand in our lives. I know that it is always there, we just overlook it sometimes.
