Today is Mom's birthday. 

This past weekend was really tough.  On Saturday I received this picture of my parents in the mail from my sister, Waynette.  I love it!  Although it made my weekend worse.  This picture is exactly how I will always remember them.  This picture was taken before Mom got sick.  I'm guessing 2009.

Monday I started thinking of doing something on her birthday.  Then it hit me!!  Attend the temple!  I sent out emails to siblings to attend the temple in honor of our Mom.  They all loved the idea.  Six of us had plans to attend today, in four different temples.  The Boise Temple is closed so Richard couldn't attend.  Brian's schedule was light enough that he was able to go with me.  It was a great session. 

I have a feeling I'll be attending the temple in honor of my parents for years.  My Dad's birthday is in July.  I'm already planning on attending on his birthday too.

What a very special, thoughtful way to honor your parents. Heaven really isn't so far away.

Your mom has such a beautiful, gentle face. I can see that in you, too.
