Gideon Returns.

My wonderful parents came and my mom spent the week with me while my dad drove up to Atlanta to pick up our missionary. Here he is, the most mature 21-year-old around:


I love these guys. I dropped them off at the airport today. Upon returning for church and stepping foot in the primary room, I heard the children singing We are as the armies of Helaman. I may or may not have bawled my eyes out.

That song gets me every time. There is a choral arrangement that combines that song with As Sisters In Zion. Our RS sang it in sacrament meeting and I didn't even bother getting up with them. I would have just stood up there and cried (and I don't just THINK I would have - I KNOW I would have because I cried through all the rehearsals).

I think I'm going to have to stop reading your blog. Every time I do I get tears in my eyes, my heart pounds in my chest and I get that lump that makes it hard to swalow. I swear I can feel what you must be feeling as you write these moments of your life.

I bawled my eyes out just thinking about hearing that song and seeing you bawling your eyes out!!! Love you :)
