It’s been cold here, but today the wind picked up and it was the strangest thing of my entire life because to tell you the honest truth, I have not felt a gust of wind since I left on my mission. The wind just never blows in Italy, never ever, and for a small moment I felt really cold, and right in Idaho. Haha I remembered how much I hate the wind. Especially on a bike. It has honestly been a really rough week. I am just so exhausted. I’ve ridden my bike 500 Km (over 310 miles) now since I got to Busto and I never get a break. Rushing here and there peddling as fast as I can so we don’t miss the next train to Busto and have to wait half an hour. And all the way from the house to the station is a hill to ride up so we ride ride ride-and then miss the train!!! I’m so tired I just sleep like a log. Literally!!! Anyways I’m dead this week and trying to find a way to keep at it full steam ahead. You know when you hear about the pioneers talking about angels helping them, I feel like that on my bike right now. Sometimes I have to look behind to see who is pushing me.
Well haven’t received many letters lately, most likely because the mail system has been at a standstill since the holidays. I’m turning into the missionaries on "the best 2 years" where they freak out every time the post comes. Pretty funny but it’s about the only thing we’ve got for fun around here haha. So everyone, feel free to send me a letter. I will be waiting to hear from you. Family, I love you so much. We will keep working hard, and you have a good week.Love,
