We'll my friends, we did it. Our son Trevor is now Elder Trevor Craig Randall and is in the MTC as of 1:15 pm today. I am so proud of him. He truly had to go through a lot to get there (I consider losing 25 lbs a lot). He was so ready to be out serving the Lord. He will be a GREAT missionary. I will miss him dearly (I already do), but I know that he is where the Lord needs him. I look forward to hearing about wonderful experiences that he will have. I look forward to being able to write him every week. I look forward to all the growth that will take place within himself. I especially look forward to two years from now when we will be welcoming him home.
Since he was born, people have told me how fast the time flies by. It is true. Just yesterday we brought Trevor home from the hospital. Now his wings are spread and he is soaring.
I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. My husband is a ROCK. There have been times when I have felt that I was 'parenting' on my own with Craig being in school, working late hours and church callings. I now see that that was not so. Craig has been guiding Trevor down the correct path all his life. Trevor has had a wonderful example in Craig. I am so grateful for this knowledge and for Craig and his example.
Our extended family and friends have been incredible too. The prayers offered on our behalf today were truly felt and appreciated. I was so calm all day and had such a peace when Trevor left. It was beautiful. It was perfect. We got a couple of blocks away, listening to some MoTab in the car, when what song came on? God Be With You Til We Meet Again. It was truly a tender mercy from our Loving Heavenly Father. I can't wait to write Trevor about that.
