Amazing Little Family–September 22, 2013

Sometimes you meet people and you just click!  It has been that way with a cute little family here in our ward.  She is a former flight attendant and he is a former Rugby player.  She used to fly into Hong Kong and we share a love of that beautiful city. 

She gave up a high paying, glamorous job because her boys came first.  Mother’s everywhere think alike! 

They have had problems with their landlord and have been living the last few weeks without electricity, and looking for a new place to live.  They said they thought it was a blessing, because they discovered the joy of reading and books and quiet time together because of it.  They don’t think the TV will be as important now as it used to be.  But they will be glad to only have candle light dinners on special occasions and not every night.

They have two boys and we see them quite often.  They are busy raising their boys, earning a living, trying to get additional education and all the other million and one things families everywhere do, as well serving in the church.

We have learned that there are wonderful people everywhere we go and it’s like that little saying:

Some people come into our lives and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never quite the same. 

This little family has certainly left a few footprints on our hearts.

And as we get to know the students at the Institute and those who come into our office better we are finding that there are more and more footprints being left on our hearts – and we realize that we really won’t ever be the same after this adventure.
