He is happy

C has been in Mexico for almost five months.  He's had a great companion that has worked hard, been obedient with exactness and been good to him.  His companion Elder Hartmann returned home yesterday.  Although I was excited for his family to have their missionary back, it was a tough day for me.  I knew that C would miss his good companion.  I made contact with his companion on Facebook today.  He sent me a message back saying,

"...last area is one of my favorite areas of my mission and a lot of that was because of what I learned with Elder Loveland. It will be good for him the transition. He himself recognized it will be that push that he needs. He has grown a lot since the first day I met him. He is happy and ready for the new responsibility and I hope and pray for his success especially there in Villa Hidalgo."

When I read the words, "he is happy" I cried tears of joy.  He will be okay.  I will be okay.  He has been gone ten months.  It has flown by.  Seriously, the fastest year of my life.  

And, I think C makes a cute cowboy.  :)
