Jon was able to perform the ordination and my dad was able to be included in the circle. Connor was also present, since he will still be a deacon for two more months. The spirit was so strong there. It brought tears to my eyes. We now have three priesthood holders in our home. It is such a wonderful feeling. I hope that I can be the kind of mother to my sons that the Stripling Warriors mothers were to them.
I hope that Colin and Connor know how much I love them and am proud of the choices they have made this far in their lives to become worthy priesthood holders...and I look forward to seeing Colin passing the sacrament for the first time next week along side his brother. They are such good examples to their little brothers. I am very blessed to have them as part of our family.
I was trying to find a recent picture of Colin and stumbled across these, which were taken when we went to Tombstone this spring. I thought since after all the talking of Colin's good choices and example, these were a little humorous. I will post a picture soon of Colin in his new Sunday clothes he got for his birthday. :)
