I'm feeling really sentimental and emotional tonight as I'm browsing through my old blog posts and looking at all the faces that have been in my life over the years. I am so, so grateful. My brother, Stephen, took this picture at Christmas last year of all my siblings and their children (minus my nephew, Jacob, who was serving a mission at the time). This picture is remarkable. Not only because almost everyone was smiling and looking at the camera, but it also signifies that my parents are remarkable people to have raised eleven children. My parents had this scripture on our wall growing up: "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." (3 John 1:4) and I think that they can feel pretty happy looking at this picture.
