It's been said that the secret to having it all, is believing that you do!
Well we truly believe that we do. We have so much to be thankful for so even though I hate to see this time in our lives draw to a close we are finally ready for the next adventure to begin...
We want our example of living life, our walk before our ten grandchildren-to be more than just talk. Actions really do speak louder than words. We believe that children are a reflection of their parents, and grandchildren are the blessings, the reward of a job well done. We all need someone to look up to; that's the privilege of being grandparents!
After working for the Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) investigating paramedics for four short years it was time for Steve to pack up and take a leave of absence to serve a mission. Steve has loved the people he had the opportunity to work with and will miss the hunt of searching for the truth.
At the request of our daughter, Katie, our wonderful friends, Tony and LaRee Bermudez hosted a Missionary Farewell for us on Sunday evening. Katie reached out to many of her friends for help and the results were delicious!!!
Just appreciating all the hard work of so many...
Steve, Jim and Diana Hunt and our hostess, LaRee.
My sister in law, Marian, her son, Jeff, her daughter, Megan, and my granddaughter Sienna.
The love and support we received was overwhelming!
Just a preview of all the things that we are planning to take on our new adventure. Steve thinks we may need to rent a U-Haul, or at the very least rent a bus, but I have faith that he will be able to fit everything in our car. I truly can't imagine leaving anything behind and have actually considered seeing if a grand child or two will fit in my suitcase :)
Daffodils are my favorite flower, and I always look forward to their arrival every year. So it seems only fitting that I close this entry by stating something that suddenly occurred to me. As hard as it is to leave family and friends at this particular time, we like the daffodils, will return again next spring so now we all have something to look forward to.
We leave for Meridian, Idaho first thing tomorrow morning to visit our oldest daughter and her family and then enter the Mission Training Center in Provo, Utah on Monday, March 4th. Our next post may be a few days late, but hopefully it will be worth waiting for.
