Being Friends with a Sister Missionary

*Dedicated my girls Shirley, Hollie, and Kristen. Welcome home.*

When your good friend tells you she's putting in her papers



She could get her call to Salt Lake City, but to you it might as well be...



When you say goodbye



When you get an actual letter from her in the mail



But then you only remember to write back once during her whole mission



Hearing stories about her crazy companions and investigators...



...as well as all the lives she's changing



When you try to describe what's going on in your own life...



...while omitting some details to not worry or distract her



When she tries to convince you to go on a mission as well



When she finally gets home



Even though you now live far away...



...it's now your job to help reintegrate her into society



First things first: the mission clothes have got to go



Credit to amenalready.tumblr.com for this one


Reassuring her about the dating pool



And even though you'll be hearing nothing but mission stories for the next two years...



...you're just so happy that she's finally back and so proud of all she's accomplished.
