First Presidency Christmas Devotional

I was able to talk with Aaron just for a little bit this afternoon, he was calling to let me know he would be going to break the fast and than to listen to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional. As I was thinking about our 11 years together it occured to me that, we went to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional together. It was I want to say like our first date.
So we were talking about our first year at Ricks and how Aaron almost did not come back for the 2 term, and how different our lives would be if he would have not decided to stay. I am so very grateful that he did. He has made my life so much better. We have two wonderful little boys with one more on the way.
I am glad that the both of us are able to listen to this years First Presidency Christmas Devotional, we may not be together but we are still able to hear the message. I am getting the boys ready right now to sit down and listen to the message. We are so very blessed to have the gospel be the same where every you live. What a wonderful thing to have.
Aaron and I have learned so much during these 9 months that we have been away from one another. We have learned how much each one of us means, how much we truly do work as a team and how we depend on one another. The past 9 months have not been easy by any means for our little family. The boys truly miss their Dad and how he plays and loves them. He misses them as well, I told Kodi today that he is a just like Daddy and I thanked him for giving me hugs so I can feel Daddy's love and Kodi's love.
We are blessed to know that our family is forever and that we will always be together, whether we are apart or together. We are blessed to have these past two months go very fast. I am still not looking forward to being a "single parent" while Aaron is in training, but with the Lords help and prayers from our family and friends, we will be just fine. Both Aaron and I can feel the prayers and we thank you for them.
