Sept. 16, 2012 HE CALLED!!!
Ok, I know our missionaries are not suppose to call except on Mother's Day and Christmas, but, I got a surprise tonight that I wasn't expecting. I was cleaning the kitchen after dinner and the phone rang. I looked at the caller ID and it was an international number. I reluctantly picked up the receiver and said hello? I heard some loud giggling and then, "Hi MOM!...giggle." I said, "Spencer, is that you? What are you doing?" He said, "I'm at a member's house and he asked for my home number and he dialed it." I asked him what he was having for dinner and he said chicken and rice and green beans. That made me happy because that was a typical Sunday dinner at our house. He then said something is Spanish, giggled some more and then there was a click and he was gone. I just wanted to say I love you, but it all happened so quickly. Boy did that phone call put my mind at ease. I know he is doing well, and he is watched over, but to hear his voice for 30 seconds brought joy to my heart. I love him and miss him so much, but I am so proud of him and the great work he is doing. I'm sure he felt badly for calling and that's why he hung up so quickly, but I hope he was as happy as I was!
