I just couldn’t end the day without a quick post to tell you about our day in Kanab. This morning, we went to the church that we attended when we lived here years ago, and it was nice to see so many familiar and friendly faces— a great way to begin the day. Then we went and visited with my nephew, Sterling Glover (Leslie’s youngest son) who is leaving for two years to serve in the Perth Australia Mission. (This is when I’m glad I have girls because young women in our church who choose to serve missions only serve for 18 months, while the young men serve two years, and I can’t imagine Shanna being gone another six months! I know, I know I’m such a baby. . . )
Anyway, I included a photo so if any of you demonstrators in Australia happen to see this good-looking young man in your travels, be sure to give him a big friendly smile and warm welcome!
Although he’s a little shy, he is one of the most sincere, sweet young men I’ve ever met, and I’m so proud of him! I’m hoping that we have a Stampin’ Up! event scheduled in Australia sometime in the next two years so I can take him (and his companion, of course!) to lunch.
I thought that would be the highlight of the day—and it was! However, we had two highlights today! Tonight we had Paul (Mom Heather’s husband) over to dinner. He’s also a fairly shy man, and has never been much of a talker, but we had a delightful time tonight, and he stayed for more than three hours! We reminisced about Mom Heather, telling stories and sharing memories, and it was the perfect way to end a perfect day in warm southern Utah!
