He Lives

I love April! General Conference, Easter, the Easter Pageant, Cannon's Birthday...lots of things to remind us what's really important in this life! I didn't get to see the pageant this year b/c en route to it, I received a phone call that my best friend was headed to the hospital to give birth to her twin girls! What a neat experience that was to be in the room during the delivery and afterwards! Seriously, such an amazing feeling that I'll never forget!

General Conference had a very significant talk by Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Seventy. I'm sure you know which one I'm referring to. I loved it and Rod & I felt like it was just for us:

“For reasons usually unknown, some people are born with physical limitations. Specific parts of the body may be abnormal. Regulatory systems may be out of balance. And all of our bodies are subject to disease and death. Nevertheless, the gift of a physical body is priceless. …
“A perfect body is not required to achieve a divine destiny. In fact, some of the sweetest spirits are housed in frail frames. …
“Eventually the time will come when each ‘spirit and … body shall be reunited again in … perfect form; both limb and joint shall be restored to its proper frame’ (Alma 11:43). Then, thanks to the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can become perfected in Him.”

Easter 2012

Here's the family visiting Cannon for Easter. My mom wanted to include our little man in the festivities so we did an easter egg hunt and blew some bubbles with Gibson and Lennox @ the cemetery. 
Rod had to show his bubble-blowing skills ofcourse! :~)

Grateful for my Savior. Grateful for the Gospel. Grateful for my eternal family. 

Just Grateful Period.
