This morning we attended the dedication of the Oquirrh Mountain LDS Temple remotely, from our own chapel here in Springville. As we sat in chairs in the section that usually serves at the cultural hall (gym) I found it a nice and poignant coincidence to look up and see the scoreboard above my head. The speaker was talking about the Adversary having less power as the number of temples on the earth grew. And then I noticed "home" and "visitors" above me. I like being on the home team.
Tomorrow we move boy #2 out to the dorms, after I put in a huge day at work. There will be a little emotion here tomorrow. I am concerned that he is concerned. As I have mentioned before, this son of mine is a bit of a homebody, content to have his own room downstairs filled with books, art supplies, and his laptop. He is easy to please, but can be reluctant to reach out. I want him to be happy and to make friends and to succeed and to ... Lots of wishes. Lots of love.
