Week 42 - Mother's Day

This week we went on a couple exchanges and that was really fun. I went with Sister Taylor one day and with Sister Jones another day. Here's a picture Sister Taylor and I:

We are doing a lot of finding, and not seeing much "success" right now, but we keep on pressing forward and trying to be creative and work hard every day.

The best thing this week was that Mother's Day happened! On Saturday and  Sunday we walked around downtown Portsmouth and gave people flowers for mother's day and most people were really happy about it!

Then we got to call home! And I got to see my beautiful family!!! And my beautiful mom!! 

I am so grateful for her and all she has done for me and our family. I have seen since being out here, lots of homes, lots of parents and many ways I do and do not want to raise my family. You really can recognize the spirit in a home, and tell when "love is spoken here". I know in my home we say "I love you" A LOT. So much that sometimes my friends have commented on how much we say it! But I wouldn't want it any other way. 

I am so grateful for the love of a parent that we get to take some special time to recognize this last weekend. I am also growing increasingly more aware of the love of our Heavenly Parents for us. And how that love never diminishes, and just like I want to make my parents here on earth proud, I want to make my Heavenly Parents proud as well. A couple months ago I made a goal to express love to Heavenly Father more frequently, morning, night, and every meal at least. And now it is just part of how I pray and it has changed how I pray. I challenge you do find a way to express love for your Heavenly, and earthly parents.

Love you all!
