What an incredible weekend we've had as a family! Our home has been filled with laughter and the blessings of being united with family members who have travelled so far in support of Cody. Grandpa Yoss, Grandma Yoss, Aunt Caecie, Uncle Travis, Clayton, and Jaecie arrived from Las Vegas. Grandpa Robertson, Grandma Robertson, Uncle Lynn, Aunt Donna, Lindsey, Aunt Eileen, Aunt Lori, Mallory, and Zoie arrived from Albuquerque. And Uncle Doug surprised everyone and drove in from Louisiana right before he heads out to Iraq.
The farewell was so spiritual. What a blessing to feel the Spirit so strong! The talks were excellent. The special musical number was simply amazing! Cody did manage to have everyone in tears during his talk. He loves his family, he loves the Lord and he is anxious to serve the people of Mexico for two years.
It was so nice to have our Ward over that evening for an open house. We had a ton of desserts and a lot of mingling. I went to bed that evening reflecting upon the day and so very thankful to my Heavenly Father for all of my many blessings. I am simply overjoyed!
