So today is the baptism of mauricio Vasquez.  My companion and I wanted to get all pretty for the baptism.  I was going to put on eye shadow, foundation, eye liner, powder, blush, mascara.  I ended up putting all of this makeup on and went walked out to do my studies with all this make up and I just didn't feel like me.  I felt like someone else.   It was so strange.  I sat down and started my studies and I couldn't focus because I felt like another person.  i looked at my compi and told her how I was feeling.  She told me I didn't look like me either.  She said she felt like she was sitting in the room with somebody else and that it was weird to see me doing the same facial expressions because I didn't look like me.  I also felt really uncomfortable with myself.  My companion said "Can you go and bring Hermana Romeril back.?" I went and washed off all my makeup and I looked in the mirror and thought "This is who I am."  Today, I finally felt the "click" that I've always wanted to feel. I've always wanted to figure out who I am - and that girl that used to wear the caked on makeup isn't me. 
It feels so amazing finally getting who I am.  I don't need tons of makeup, or money, or a perfect body to feel like me.  Kelby Ann Romeril isn't made up of those things.  Make up doesn't mark or show my beauty, the light of Christ does.  The light of Christ is the best brand of makeup.  Yo udon't ned a lot of money to buy it--you don't need any $.  The light of Christ highlights all your good features, in the perfect, natural way.

I love you so much!! I cannot wait to see you in november, seriously!! I hope you are doing well, you look really good!! Let me know if ther´s something I can do ok? 
Sorry this letter is kinda short, I was trying to send pictures and my computer kept shutting down but know that I love you all so much, and Im so grateful for you. I hope all is well and I hope you have a great week :)
