Monson had his mission farewell today.
|Tanner Farley...home from Fiji.....and Monson.....ready to go to Michigan!|
Monson talked about many things and different people who trusted in the Lord, but I was really pleased when he spoke about Laila's head injury and how we as a family just had to put all of our Trust in the Lord to make it through this..... my big, tough, football player got all choked up about it. He also said some pretty nice things about his Grandma Sheri and her optimistic attitude as she tackles this cancer that's in her body. She is a fighter and will definitely kill "it" with kindness. It was fun to see the debut of Mom's new red/strawberry blonde wig too. She looks like Monson's Grandma, that's for sure. So stunning!

Monson is going to be a great missionary in Michigan...and now he just needs to get through these next 16 days. I have plans to keep him busy and give him things to do so he just doesn't sit around all day in waiting. I am glad it's the holidays, filled with built in family time and parties. Monson will be leaving soon and it makes me excited and teary all at the same time.
We finally got Monson's missionary pics back. A wonderful lady takes missionary pics for free. She is Shootz photography up in Kaysville, and I find her and this service truly amazing. I am grateful to have stumbled upon this blessing. The pics are beautiful of my baby boy.
