I Hope They Call Me On A Mission....


My sweet baby brother is gone on a mission. He went into the MTC today and I am so glad that he is going to serve the people of the Mexico, Leon Mission. I am so proud of the "man" that he has become. It was such a cool thing to be able to see him prepare and finally go & do what he has been called to do. The people of Mexico are going to be so blessed to have someone as fun, caring and smart as my brother! When TJ's brother got home from his mission he told us a really cool quote by Helen Keller that I feel can apply to every one! (I'm probably going to slaughter it so just don't quote me on it OK?)
"When you look toward the Sun, the shadows fall behind you". As long as we look toward the good things and turn to what will make us better, all darkness and bad things will fade to the background! I am so proud of my baby brother and we can't wait until he comes home, 730 days and counting!

I love that quote too. I change the word sun to "The Son" and feel it's even more applicable. :)

Chels,

Hopefully you check this blog of yours because I have been dreaming of your banana cream pie dessert ever since I sampled it over Thanksgiving at Pebble. Whenever you get this message would you mind sending me the recipe? Culinary genius I tell you:) Thanks Chels, hope you guys are doing well. I miss my Utah fam.
