Mother's Day of 2014 was horrendous from a weather perspective. We received a foot of snow (as depicted by the photo above). This year brought us milder weather for Mother's Day, and I was grateful for that. Unfortunately, the snow is coming later this week. I don't think I will ever grow accustomed to the reality that snow can come in any month when you live in Wyoming.
We have a deacon ordination this week. Our new bishop will be ordained in three weeks. Then, I am hoping for a bit of a slower pace for a few weeks. It has been a productive spring, but some rest and relaxation on the horizon looks quite appealing right now.
I hope you had a wonderful day to honor your mom--whether living or deceased. It is hard to believe that my mom has been gone for a year and a half. This picture (below) from July of 2015 reminds me that we should never take for granted the moments we have at hand. Three months after that photo was taken she was no longer here. Let us be grateful to God for the love we experience in daily life from family members.
