Tomorrow is May 1st and the office is taking off for a national holiday. We have to work part of the day to help some people that are coming in--we did not know it was a holiday. It got us to thinking that two years ago at this time, we were beginning to talk to the Perpetual Education Fund, and we were going to visit the kids in Orem/Provo/Lindon. Two years ago we had 2 less grandchildren, and two less kids married. Two years ago Michael was getting his papers ready for a mission. A lot has happened for the good in these two years. We feel like the sacrifice that everyone has made so that we can serve a mission demonstrates our gratitude towards our Father in Heaven for these blessings. Mom tries to go to the temple once a week and she invariably still puts various of our children on the temple rolls concerning something that concerns her. I, on the other hand, feel like each of the family is being blessed and will continue to be blessed because each person is trying to be worthy of the blessings that they receive. Two years...a lot of good things have come our way.
