music to my ears


i would be remiss if i didnt mention that hunter blessed the 
sacrament for the first time yesterday.
i sat there close enough to see the expression on his face, hear the tone of his voice
and witness the fact that he took his responsibility seriously.
i was proud.
let me re-phrase...i was pleased.

 i would also be negligent if i didnt recount the experience 
last week when carson ordained him to the office of a priest.
a beautiful, very special blessing given from one brother to another.
and yes, i did say brother.
one they will both remember for the rest of their lives. 
words cannot express the feelings in that room...and april and i were a mess. 

and so was max.
it was a beautiful thing.

poor max....he just wears his feelings on his sleeves. We wouldn't have missed that for the world!!! never to be forgotten. i've reflected on that day many times this week due to the fact that those amazing young boys are soooo different from the world. truly remarkable.

Nothing like it - realization that your boy is becoming a man - kind of bittersweet, too. You can be 'proud' of that!
