A few weeks ago, Sadie mentioned that she's considering going back to BYU in the summer, six weeks after returning from her mission. And all of the sudden it hit me all over again, she is never really coming home. At least not to stay. And yes, I know that's the way it's supposed to be, and yes, that's the way that I want it because it's right, and healthy, and good. But, it still hurts sometimes.
|Thank you Amy (a church member from Texas) for the pic and the love!
"Whenever people ask me about having children or not having children, I never tell them what to do, I simple say, there is no experience like having children. That's all. There is no substitute for it. …If you want the experience of having complete responsibility for another human being, and to learn how to love an bond in the the deepest way, then you should have children."
If you've never read this book, do. It's wisdom and love is a beautiful package. And I think Morrie just nailed the whole parent thing.
Happy Birthday to my Sadie Lauren. Love in the deepest way.
