There is something about love that always brings you back to that person.

For me, that person is Jordan Flores. He is the most amazing man in my life. Ever since that day in January 2010 when I was blessed to meet him, my life has changed, for the better. Everything I do has hope and purpose and meaning. He gave me my fire back. He is one man who deserves the best of everything in the world, but he chose me. I am the luckiest girl ever. I don't know what I would do without him.

557 days ago I said goodbye to him. For 731 days.
Hardest day of my life, but also the best. The mission that he has been serving for our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been the biggest blessing in his life and mine ( and the lives of many, many others.) When he first left, I was in so much pain and feeling so selfish, that I managed to miss every miracle that was coming from him serving. As soon as I opened my eyes, I realized the eternal reason why he is serving. He has never made me a prouder girlfriend. Even though he left his family and I for 2 years, he is making it so that other families can be together forever, the greatest gift of them all.

173 days from now (give or take a few), we will be together again.
All of this pain, lonliness, sadness, happiness, craziness, and tears will all be over. I will never have to write another letter, yell at another postal worker, or wake up at 7am on Monday mornings to get my email. I cant WAIT for that. But would I change this journey? NO. Because it makes Jordan and I who we are.

I love you, Elder Flores!
