A Very Merry Half-Birthday

jan302008 002This week Preston had his half birthday! Hooray! We have kept him alive for that long! Watching him grow has been a lot of fun. Along with him growing, I think Shaun and I have grown as well. We are learning how to balance being parents with everything else and we have learned how much a person can love can love a child. We just love this kid so much it literally hurts to think of anything happening to him. I think this has given us a small glimpse of how much we are loved by our Father in Heaven.

This morning was President Hinckley’s funeral. It was a really nice service. He was just an amazing man. If any of you were ever blessed to be in his presence, I don’t think you can deny that he was a prophet of God. I remember when he came here for the ground breaking of the Sacramento Temple and when he walked into the Mormon Center Chapel everyone started singing “We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet” and I couldn’t even sing because of the knot in my throat. The spirit was so strong. Times like that are another strong reminder of how much we are loved by God!! President Hinckley will be missed, but he must be so happy!

I hope that You are all having a great day…a great GROUNDHOG day…and Phil the groundhog says “6 more weeks of Winter!” (http://www.groundhog.org/prediction) All of you in Utah, good luck…LOVE YOU!
