Sunshine Sunday - Looking Forward

Thank you all so much for your kind birthday wishes.  I did have a wonderful birthday.  I am so blessed be surrounded by kind, thoughtful people.  And, I felt like I got a birthday card in the mail everytime you guys commented.  Thank you!

Today and always I am so grateful for things to look forward to. When day to day moments are tough it always helps me immensely to have something to look forward to. It can be small - like the weekend. It can be big - like a vacation.

Can I tell you what I'm looking forward to right now?  My parents left to serve a mission for our church in Russia.  They've been gone for a year and a half.  They got a tiny little visit when my mom had to fly back for some urgent surgery, but other than that they have never seen Baden.  That's not because we're not tight.  It's the first time they'd missed being there for a grandchild's birth.  It's because they were willing to sacrifice for something they know is more important than anything else.

They landed in Wisconsin a little over a week ago, but they will arrive here in Utah this week and I. CAN'T. WAIT.  I get emotional just thinking about it.  I love them so much and I'm so proud of them. 

I can't wait till they get to squeeze this little guy.  I'll just watch.  Did I mention I'm excited?  I am.  Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you.  Your turn.  What are you looking forward to?
