Yesterday was a big day for our family. Brian was ordained to the office of High Priest. His parents came out for a visit and his dad was able to do the ordination. Brian has been called to the High Counsel. He is really nervous about this call and so am I. Our Wednesday nights are going to be busy. I am in the Young Women’s Presidency and have mutual Wednesday nights and he has high counsel meetings. Last night another member of the High Counsel stopped by to drop off some manuels and handbooks to Brian and said that the meetings could go quit late. I am happy for my guy and lucky to have such a wonderful man to take care of our family. We love him.
It was also bitter sweet to hear of the death of President Gordon B. Hinckley. I just love him. We attended Stake Conference and President Monson spoke. He said that President Hinckley wanted to be there with us, but was unable. It was interesting after we heard the news. What a wonderful example and inspiration President Hinckley has been. It is reassuring to know that he is happy with his darling wife in Heaven. We have been so blessed to have him with us for so long! He enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest!
“In all of living have much fun and laughter. Life is be enjoyed not just endured.”
– President Gordon B. Hinckley
