Eternally Bound

I know this is going to sound lame, but yesterday I had a ton of fun just hanging out with Amy. How you ask; well, we went to Hobby Lobby to pick out some fabric for Christmas gifts. Then we went to Best Buy to look at cameras. Now while this might not be exciting happenings for most's the most I've been out of the house "alone" in a long time. Technically I did have one small person (Alexis) with me, but she was good most of the day.
On the way home Amy and I were talking about babies and life and death, all sorts of interesting topics; and it made me think, wow...6 years already. I sometimes can't believe she's been gone for that long. I can't complain, most days go by without tears, and some days I'm even "happy" for her. It's the other 5% of the time when it just smacks you in the face that you have to worry about. Talking with Amy yesterday helped me realize a little more just how important it is that I continue to raise my children in the gospel. I never want them to question where they are from or where they are going when they die. I want them to be comforted in knowing that even though it hurts when we lose people, we will see them again. We have the opportunity to live with them again, after they pass away. This gospel is the only one that explains that path back to our loved ones. I want my girls to know exactly what it takes, and be able to do it.
Since I'm not the public speaking type, this is about as close to a speech as I get. So just in case certain people are reading this, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for not giving up on me and Jayson through all those years of missionary discussions, all the Monday Night Dinners, all the fights, a few break-ups, but mostly through all the heartache in your family. It means so much to me that even through all that, you were there waiting for us to decide when it was the right time for us. Right there to welcome us in, to help nourish us in the gospel, to make sure we understood how important those steps were. I know I can speak for Jayson and the girls when I say...We love you, we thank you, and we would not have made it this far without your love and support. That means all three of you... R,S,A (you know who you are).

Lisa!! I had so much fun with you too! I was afraid I was stealing your day though. I'm so glad you came! I'm having a blast with it by the way! I'll post some soon. I love hearing your testimony. You are such an example - and so right - we are so fortunate to know what it takes to get to where we want to be. What a great legacy you have to pass on to your children. Thanks for sharing.
