ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

Like all families who support missionaries, we have found the blessings are plentiful and choice. Some of these blessings in our family have occurred in connection with how and when the calls were received.

For example, when our oldest child, David, received his call, it arrived exactly 52 weeks from the day his grandmother was buried - one day shy of the one-year "anniversary" of her mission in the spirit world.Our next child, Robert, received his call on his sister Karen's birthday. Our third child, Sheryl, received her call on her mother's birthday. And her call was dated April 2, her grandmother's birthday.

Our fourth child, Brent, received his call on his oldest brother, David's, birthday. We can't think of any nicer birthday gifts.
