They Hoped to be Called on a Mission

They hoped to be called on a mission,
They prayed and readied for the work,
They wanted to go somewhere special,
Where they could learn & serve & never would they shirk.

The call said, Go to Salt Lake City,
Please help to build the kingdom strong,
Prepare for lessons and for blessings,
Knowing well that you are right where you belong.

My mom and dad (aren't they are good looking couple?!) are going on an LDS mission. They will serve in the church office building as Construction Finance Specialists for 18 months beginning August 2nd. We couldn't be more thrilled for them to start this next adventure together and what a bonus that they will be so close to us!! I feel a lot of Temple Square trips coming on. Love you, Mom and Dad.

That is so exciting. That sounds like a neat mission.

Rita - 40 is a breeze. Once your actual birthday is over you will be amazed. It was the prepping for the actual event that stressed me out. You know. "I thought I'd have accomplished more. I thought I'd be better...." Enough of all that, eh?
