He's Home


The long awaited day is finally here. Tyler has arrived home from the Maryland, Baltimore mission. He has served faithfully and has returned with honor. It has been better than I could of imagined to be reunited with him again. He has grown and matured into such a wonderful young man.
Alyson is in big brother heaven having him home again. She doesn't let him get too far away from her. At the dinner table a fight breaks out over who gets to sit by Tyler. I joke and tell him that this is how it must feel to be a rock star or celebrity
We love the spirit that he has brought into our home, and to have his music again has been such a treat! Hearing the piano, and his voice and his guitar has been the one thing that I have missed the most.
We just returned from his report with the Stake presidency and the High council, his testimony of Jesus Christ was so pure and real. It touched me more than I can express.
It seems we send our boys on missions and they return home to us men with such a strong testimony of the Gospel.
I have more to share, but hopefully this will give you a taste of my JOY!
