Well, its mothers day (Sunday). I thought about writing about mothers but I thought that I would write to you instead!
I love being here in the Santa Rosa Mission serving the Lord my God. I want to thank you for your love and support.
Lately I've been thinking about the past times that we have spent together. There was alot of smiles and laughter, but also hard times. Times of fighting, tears and heart ache.
Remember the times cracking nuts and watching the David Letterman show? Staying up late on a school night talking to you about my frustrations and troubles? Walking around Salt Lake City taking pictures of all the Olympic stuff and 2-3 o'clock in the morning? Ya, good times. You have always been there to help me whenever I needed it. But what I will always remember most, is your love for the gospel. No matter what came your way no matter how hard it was for you, you always remained faithful to the Lord. If it weren't for your example, I'm not sure if I would be were I am today. You taught all us kids what it meant to stand up for what you believe in and to always trust in God.
Thank you for being there and trusting in the Lord, and doing what you know to be right. I know that He is proud of you and your desires to live close to Him. I'm proud of you for the mother that you are and the mother you have become.
I love this gospel with all my heart, and my Savior Jesus Christ. I know He lives and we can live with Him again. I'm grateful for the temples and the blessings of the temple, that I can be with my family forever. I'm glad that I get to be with you, my father, my brother, my sister and their families for time and all eternity. What a great plan Heavenly Father has for us! I hope that you will continue to always remember this plan and strive to be more and more like our Savior Jesus Christ.
