I hope they call me on a mission...

We were so lucky to have my favorite Uncle and Aunt come have dinner at our house before being set apart and entering the MTC for their mission. Uncle, oops Elder and Sister Booras will enter the MTC tomorrow morning. They are serving in the mission home in the San Jose Mission. I am so excited for them and so proud of their decision to serve a mission. They are amazing people, they love life and everyone around them. They will do amazing things.

All the girls with Uncle Terry

Cute girls!!

We were invited to go to my Dad's house where Uncle Terry and Aunt Mary were set apart. It was a wonderful experience and we were so honored they invited us to come.

And one of the funnest things to see, my Uncle Terry brought an old picture he found of his older brother waiting in the bus station to drive out to Provo, Utah to enter the MTC. This is a picture of a picture, so the quality isn't great. But look how handsome he is, with quite the swagger! And look how gorgeous my grandma is waiting with her son and my Uncle joked that there is a picture where he had hair! It was a great story and we were so glad they shared with us.

Just one of those days...

Have you ever had "just one of those days?"

Where everything just seems to go wrong?
Your hands work completely against you and you drop, bump, or tip over anything near you.
Your emotions get the best of you and you just can't seem to keep it together.
Your children lose their baseball glove 30 minutes before it's time to go.
Babies are just fussy (no screamy) all day long.
The white laundry comes out a little "gray" and who knows what caused it.
The children leave mounds of toothpaste on a freshly scrubbed bathroom counter.
You get a fresh bruise above a finally healing one.

And finally... by the end of the day...
you look at the Mister and say "It's your turn"

"Put the babies to bed"
"Get the boys jammies on"
"I'm taking a bath"

And then during said bath, you cry because you feel guilty for throwing a pity party.

And you listen to a testimony about your Heavenly Father that brings happy tears to your eyes.

Our Heavenly Father knows us.

He loves us.

He wants our happiness.

With Him, anything is possible.

And tomorrow is another day.
