Leavin' ... on a jet plane.

I booked four airline tickets tonight ...
for a big event that is taking place at the end of this month.  
You might say it's an event of a lifetime! 

Any guesses?

Nah, you'd never guess this one.

We're flying to Arkansas (ya'll) to witness Gary as he baptizes his Mom, and welcomes her into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!  It's kind of a miracle that has been many years in the making.  I still can't believe it.  She's so excited to have finally found what she has been searching for, and we're thrilled to be able to experience this new found happiness with her.  This incredible woman just added a whole new dimension to our family.

What a gift to be given this Easter season.  

Congratulations Freda!  You Mormon, you!

that is the best news ever Karen...you took my breath away in Testimony meeting! I'm so happy for all of you. Made me think back when we met Gary years ago when he was a new convert and all these years being the only member. I'm sure this has brought everything full circle. Freda is a wonderful woman and she deserves it all!

I wish it was happening in Arizona. I can't wait to hear all about it. I hope Gary can remember the words. What a cool moment. Is the whole family going?
