happy news...

I've started to compose this post many times, and have been thinking about it for even longer. 
There's no beating around the bush though.
It is what it is.

I have some happy news to share!
This week I'm (hopefully) submitting my papers. 
Mission papers that is. 
Me too.
But here we go!

I have felt so anxious for the past month and have been so secretive!
My own parents were even out of the loop in the beginning.
But now they're about to burst because they want to spread the news. 
It's out! 
I, Sara Turner, am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Who woulda thought?

I've known for a month or two but have been seriously shushed about it all.
While the news has started to spread, I thought I should make a formal blog announcement.
So there you go folks.
It's happening.
I'm thrilled, anxious, nervous, excited, calm, sure, optimistic and happy.
