Our Weekend of Long Missed Friends
Today I was invited over to the Williams's to participate in a Missionary discussion with our ward's newest member. The boys and I walked over, leaving Carl at home since he had only a short time before he had to head off to work. I walked in not really paying attention to anything but getting the pitcher I was bringing back to the kitchen when I heard the missionaries say something about me not being very observant. "Well, what did I miss?" I thought as I turned around. Nothing I could see, but then again I heard, "Well, she'll notice eventually." Now I was really perplexed...what had I missed?! As I peeked over at the half wall to confront the missionaries, I saw none other than Elder Tams! Hooray! I have a big soft spot for this young man. I tell you, I honestly wept huge tears when he got transfered over 7 months ago. I can't tell you how excited I was to see him in the flesh again! It was also a wonderful thing since I had lost track of his address a few moths back and had no idea where he had been transfered to. So, of course I phoned Carl right away and told him to get his keister over to Lindsey's fast. He was really happy to see Tams again as well. What a blessing!
Now the weekend gets even better because Elder Robins is coming for a visit with his parents tomorrow. He finished his mission on Wednesday and has been traveling the greater Metro-Detroit area visiting all the families he has been with over the past 2 years. We are the last stop on the Robin's express and are so excited to see him tomorrow. I am expecially excited to visit his mother that I have been in contact with since Carl was baptised. So, our weekend is a joyous one, with lots of memories and happiness.
