Man, I feel so relaxed and just at home here! Like Ancona is just the best place ever. This week has been really uneventful and just a lot of finding, but I like it! It's getting hotter hear and I'm realizing how much I have missed the heat! Like these past 9 months I've been cold for the most part but I've gotten the taste of a couple warm days and it's nice, especially when you live on the ocean! Its awesome here.
I just have to say how much I love IKEA. We went there today because it was on the way to another place we were going to and we just ate those meatballs and walked around and it was great. Like I felt like at home and like I was in America again. It was the best!
Alright well, a couple days ago my companion really opened up to me and shared some really good personal stuff about life at home right now. It kinda freaked me out because like I felt for him. Like I really felt at least some of the pain he is feeling and it scared me a bit because I wasn't sure if I was gonna be able to empathize and help him and be strong myself. But after two seconds of that I realized that my ability to connect with people and really feel what they feel is a gift. So I decided that I'm gonna just give this guy my heart and help him the best I can. And of course he's fine and everything's good. But I just can't imagine how President Monson went to go visit all those widows and heard all their and stories and was ok! It's not easy to empathize/sympathize with people but that's what the Savior did! So I'm gonna do it! Man I just love Jesus!!
