Fun to read all your posts and catch up on the latest. So glad Ray's big day for her hubby went well. What a huge effort and labor of love :) And Ray--I hope Jacob will get properly diagnosed soon so he can get some relief, poor baby. You're doing an awesome job, caring for him and the other children you have in your home.
Susan--that's cool that your family has done mission trips in other parts of the world! You can relate to us LDS sisters, too, as you've seen the character changing and humbling that happens when our children/family serve, fulltime. Please post pics of your knitting projects, too--how fun to make baby clothes! I crochet because I'm a terrible knitter--always dropped stitches.
Hope you're doing OK with the boosts, Momz. You're all most done!!! I liked your sweet poem--thanks for sharing it with us, and I'm glad you're blessed with wonderful letters from a son on a mission. We look forward to Mondays, too, as our son is serving in AZ. He sure loves the Spanish speaking people he's serving. He's still a fun-loving young man and writes about some of the humorous things that happen, but always tells us about the daily "miracles." I'm humbled by the way he listens to the spirit, directing him where to go and who to contact. It always seems to work out.
The Easter pageant at the Mesa Temple has been a huge help for our son and all the missionaries in the area to teach others about Jesus Christ and the resurrection. I'm so glad he's had lots of people attend that he and his companion have invited. It's worth going to AZ to see this beautiful pageant. We saw it many years ago with our 3 oldest children. It would've been nice to see it again when we pick up our son on April 24th--we'll miss it by a few weeks. We're looking forward to seeing him again and visiting the new Gilbert and Phoenix temples. I'm so excited! Our youngest daughter will be back at BYU-Idaho and miss seeing our son by 2 weeks, but they'll see each other this summer. It's going to be odd, having our son in his room again.
Another grandbaby is due April 6th, which will make 5 boys and 5 girls. I'll be in Texas the week of the 13th, helping my daughter with the 3 older children while my Son-in-law is away on business. It will be a joy to see them and spend uninterrupted time with them.
Ray knows how much I LOVE Fridays, but now I'm loving them more because it means one more day closer to General Conference weekend--yes! I'll be making (attempting) these bunny shaped pancakes to eat while we watch the conference in the comfort of our home. Love to all!
