Welcome Home Michael

Sometimes goodbyes and hellos all run together in tears of joy.  For the past two years our son Michael has been away in Korea serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  He returned last week to a joy filled ...teary eyed family, excited to see their big brother come home!
It isn't easy having your son so far away, but the joy that comes from knowing your son is helping other people fills every bit of the emptiness of having him home.

I created a little video of his two years in Korea and the crazy homecoming at the airport.  I loved putting this snapshot together for him.  It's not easy putting two years of new friends, service, love and laughs into a three minute video...but this is it....

It is soooo wonderful to have our son back home...just to hear his voice in our home brings a smile to our faces.  We love hearing about his adventures in Korea and am learning a few words in Korean too.

 Of course...typical of everything I do, the banner that was suppose to say "welcome home" was hung backwards and read "welcome emoh".  We all had a good laugh about it...and figured he wouldn't notice after a year of reading Korean!!!

Now to go pack to head to Washington and help our daughter welcome our newest grand daughter into the world and prepare a huge 20th birthday celebration for our "little Tina" who isn't so little anymore.

It has been a busy few weeks...and will be even more so heading towards Easter...but there is nothing that I love more that being a mom and grand mom to these kiddos.
