Its been awhile

I know that we have more memories than we have been sharing, but I think we are all busy people so we don't come here very often and it slips our mind. I'm trying to think of something good to share here.

I remember staying with Grandma and Grandpa Soper in St. George. The house was always incredible clean. We had so many choices for breakfast. There was a running joke about breakfast cereal. If you were out of cereal, but still had milk you had a refill. The same if you were out of milk , but you still had cereal. Grandma always had those ice cream pops for us, the ones that you push the stick up so you can get more ice cream. And she was have us drink alovera juice. She was a firm believer of alovera, but we really prefered the orange juice. We loved our grandma so we drank it down anyway (I made sure to hold my breath).

We had wooden tulips every where from Grandpa's workshop. He was quite the expert in making wooden flowers. I wonder where all of the tulips ended up.

When I was on my mission, about 5 years after Grandpa past away a few months after Grandma past on I was having a difficult time. I was feeling discouraged with the work. The work wasn't going anywhere and I wasn't getting along with my companion. I was feeling really low. I had a dream that I entered into a room. There were a lot of people in that room that I didn't know, but they all seemed to recognize me. On one side of the room were Grandma and Grandpa. I felt their love for me and I could feel how proud they were of me. In my dream I felt to my knees and began to cry. I felt warmth and love from all those in the room even though I only recognized two of them. I had the feeling that Grandma and Grandpa knew these other people and that they must also be related to me. I don't remember if anything was said, but what was felt couldn't be denied. When I woke up I still had the warm feeling deep within my heart. I knew that the feelings were too intense to be just a normal dream. I believe that Grandpa and Grandma came to visit me that day to let me know that I wasn't alone and that I was loved deeply.

I know they still watch over us today.
