Good Mail

My sister in-law Ashley(Greg's youngest sister) sent me a little package today for Mother's Day/Birthday. I was surprised to get mail for myself today,let alone good mail. I opened the Happy Birthday envelope to find a sweet card and the book "All Moms Go To Heaven". I have considered ordering this from Deseret Book for myself but just never have. It looks like something all moms and maybe dads need to read.
Well known LatterDay Saint writer Dean Hughes describes in this book the summer he spent taking care of the kids while his wife worked on her master's degree. He says, " After a few weeks of drying tears(sometimes his own), changing diapers, and watching Sesame Street, he came to understand what mothers really do and why they're so important".
Thanks Ash. I love it and can't start looking at this book. Give Hunter hugs and kisses from us.

I'm so happy you had a good mail day, those are the best. That book sound very good (Katie recommended it on her blog recently) and it's something I wouldn't normally be drawn to, but now I'm curious. Thanks.
