For Mother's Day the Alice Springs missionaries made us dinner, said nice things they appreciated about us (which was impressive and creative since they've only known me for a couple days), and gave us these wonderful aboriginal paintings done by Colleen, one of the members in that area. It was wonderful. As much as I appreciated hearing the nice things they said about me, hearing what they had to say about my mom and about Lisa's mom (her parents are serving a mission in Alice Springs and working on this amazing literacy project everyone is very excited about) made my night.
I was really touched by what they said. As hard as it has been to have my parents leave, I wouldn't change a thing because I know what a difference they have made in so many peoples lives. I feel like if I have been so greatly blessed to have them as parents, I would be ungrateful if I wasn't willing to share them with the rest of the world.
