Happy Mother's Day! I thought that this day would go just fine but I got to church and I couldn't help but think about last year's Mother's Day...it brought tears to my eyes. My two wonderful brothers called me and wished me Happy Mother's Day even though I was just starting into the throes of motherhood. So I had to shed a few tears because I knew that I would be missing a call this year and every year from my sweet brother of mine. I missed him today terribly.

So my little brother, Kyle, just left on his mission on Thursday! He is going to the London England South Mission. I thought that being all together again would be hard because there is always this feeling that someone is missing and there is. I thought that at the airport that all the excited would help us not be reminded of Adam. But lo and behold, there was a missionary that was leaving with Kyle for the same mission and his name....not joking...was Adam David Livingston. My mom and I couldn't believe it...what are the chances? It was almost like Adam was saying, "I am going with you, Kyle! I get to be with you on your mission in some small way.."

For those of you who do not know, my little brother, Adam, passed away on March 3, 2011 from cancer. I was there when he passed out of this world. It was a horrible sight that will be forever etched into my memory. As hard as it is to remember it is the first thing that comes into my mind. It has been so hard for me to face the reality that I won't wake up tomorrow and get a phone call and hear his voice on the other line, "Hey, sis! Whatcha doing?" It hurts to lose my brother but it hurts even more to see his wife go through it too. He left a wife and two beautiful girls, Kimberly (2 1/2) and Kayla (3 1/2 Months old). This has made me appreciate my family all the much more. I love him and will miss him so much. How grateful I am for the gospel and the eternal nature of families. What a hard time it would be if that was absent in my life.
