Nothing to Describe

There is nothing that can quite describe the feelings of joy when your children make great choices and turn out to be good people.

Last night was one of those memorable moments for me. I guess you could call it payback. It seems like just yesterday I was brought this very darling baby boy with beautiful red hair and I immediately fell in love with him and I just can't believe that he is as old as he is. Last night he was ordained to be an Elder in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints by his father. I just can't express the great joy that was in my heart. What a night and what a great spiritual experience for all that were there. All of our kids were there, our bishop, the single's ward bishop, a member of the bishopric and Mike's parents. I have been waiting for this day for a long time and it was wonderful. AJ you are great and you will make a great missionary.

So exciting! He looks so handsome...are his papers all turned in and everything?

And, you're right, I totally did a double take seeing Mike with long(er) hair and a goatee! :)

You have some really amazing kids and they say a lot about you and your husband. Our children can be our biggest compliment. Congratulations!

That's so great. You have great kids. Can't wait to see where he gets called too! (Or did he receive his call already and I'm just being a dunce with half a brain ?)

Thats Fantastic! Now for the mission call! I like that Mike is now wearing facial hair, now that he is retired from military and can! :)
