The clock has also begun counting down to email days. That precious moment where mothers and fathers sit at their computers or phones syncing email every few seconds, hoping by some miracle to catch their missionary sending, and be able to respond, much as the Who (you know, those which Horton hears), "We are here, we are here, WE ARE HERE!" It is a simple thing, and may not technically be allowed, but it thrills us anyway to have those few minutes of our child, whom we will not see or hug for 2 long years.
Here is where those precious emails will be posted. No one else may care, except for perhaps his mother and father, but that's ok. We can live with that. This blog is one small thing we can do to feel connected and a part of this great and amazing thing Tayler has decided to do. So read, don't read, believe, or don't believe what is typed. We aren't really posting for you anyway. We do this because we love Elder Hagen and are counting months, weeks, and minutes with each post.
