Emma asked me (mom) this in a separate email.
This might be a dumb question, but is it hard to watch us grow up and leave, and change?
My response and then hers.
In some ways...I miss the moments when you were small and our world was you and me...but what joy I have seeing you become who Father needs and wants you to be. No greater joy I have than seeing you make and keep covenants and make eternal choices.
I love you too Emma! You have a great week and stay healthy and happy!
Thank you mom :) Like that is beautiful, I am crying. I miss you and I love you :) I think that is how Father feels about us. like.... I needed that :) I don't know why, but I did. I love you too mom :)
The song by Helen Reddy has come to my mind: "You And Me Against The World". Being a mother is and has been and will be forever, my greatest joy, gift, blessing! It has not been easy, but I am so grateful for all the special moments everyday that give me a glimpse into eternity.
Father and our Savior love us all so much. This life is but a moment in eternity and I pray daily that me, John and our children and posterity will fight for truth and right. The battle continues and we each need to put on the "whole armour of God" and "be steadfast and immovable".
