Good Sabbath! Sometimes there is too much life to be lived to spend time writing about it. This is one of those weeks. Her is a quick peek into what our week has been like.
Our missionary came home! Elder Dan has returned from the Mexico, Xalapa mission, full of energy, Spirit and who knows what manner of parasites..
Airport reunions are wonderfully visible and cheesy. I love them. As for the missionary: He is very huggable, speaks too fast, loves the carpet, and is a joy to be around. Missions do wonderful things to those who serve them, the families they leave behind, and the people they serve.
One of the all-time great hugs.
Also, this weekend we celebrate our sweet grandson Owen receiving a name and blessing. He is the little guy that is having some physical struggles, so the emotions already run very close to the surface. Invoking the authority and power of the priesthood through prayer and ordinances boosts the faith of everyone involved. Proud of my son and daughter-in-law who are working their way through his struggles with grace and faith. They don’t get any cuter than this:
This morning we are off to watch as our son reports on his mission to the High Council, followed by his report in Sacrament meeting. Supportive family and friends from all over have rolled in to be a part of it. It is wonderful.
To be sure, every family has highs and lows. There are times that things are just clicking, and fall into place. There are other times when everything is a struggle. On a week like this, we overlook the problems and focus on the joy and blessing that are right in front of us.
I feel grateful and content. And old. (In a good way.) I also don’t feel much like blogging about my life when I’m busy living it.
Have a great sabbath!
