We spent this day with just our little family making Memorial day memorable for the children, but I was sad that we really didn't help the children remember those who have gone on before us.
Here are a few people that I usually remember and that have a special place in my heart:
Both my Grandpas have passed away, and I miss them both so much. I felt closer to both of them than most of my other extended family. They were both full of life and love. Their testimonies of Christ shone brightly through their happy eyes. I love them and am thankful for the great examples they have set for me.
This is my father's little sister. Even though I never knew her, she holds a special place in my heart. I know that she is still alive in spirit and that someday I will meet her.
As my Grandma Rowe always says, "Family is everything". I know that even though it is hard to miss those that have passed away, it isn't the end. I know we will all rise in the resurrection and be with our family and friends again. All made possible through Jesus Christs atonement and resurrection. Through the blessing of the temple, we can be sealed to our families forever.

Then I chopped them off, it was a lot harder than I had envisioned. I was worried I had cut it very uneven.

David did this with his watercolor paints and paint brush. He came up with the circles and designs himself and only used his paint brush. I thought it looked like it would make a nice design for a card.
These pictures below were a "thank you" to the family that let us stay and visit Corrizo Springs.
David has been drawing bouquets of flowers and hearts in most of his art. The black dots make up a picture of one of their dogs.
Here is another example of how colorful Rebecca's art is. She likes to use most of the colors and fill the whole page.

Last night we wanted to focus on each sister's talents and abilities and allow sisters to display their talents or accomplishments. Later we played a service game similar to the White Elephant Gift game. Once again I always get worried about playing games too, but once I join in I always have fun. All of us were laughing most of the time, it was a great game. Of course we did sing the song I posted about and it turned out beautifully. The eight sisters that helped did an amazing job singing, even after only two times of getting together to practice (or less for some of them). My prayers were answered as well with my part in the song of accompanying, and I was able to play the song with the Spirit and not make noticeable mistakes. (although I know I did make a few mistakes they were very minor) I was filled with so much gratitude to my Heavenly Father that everything went so well.
I left the meeting filled with love for the sisters in our Relief Society and a greater desire to serve. The Relief Society is a divine organization and is inspired and led by the Spirit. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am filled with love, peace, and happiness when I am doing my best to be His disciple.
