Life's Speed Bumps

Although there are things happening in Washington that I'd love to go on about, I can't right now, and I hope you'll all be here when I get back.

We've had a freak accident that took the life of my younger brother on Thursday, and I can't seem to wrap my brain around anything harder than brushing my teeth at the moment.

I know with all my heart that he is having a joyous reunion with beloved family members; my Testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is sure, my compass points True North. However, my heart and my head don't seem to be speaking the same language lately, and I need to not think about politics for a week or so.

So have a Happy Groundhog Day--usually a day to at least bake cookies or something right?

Besides, with the way things are going in D.C., not much will have changed, and it might be like we haven't missed a week chatting about it.

See you soon.

It's OK to mourn and be sad, it's OK to miss him. (D&C42:45) I wish I was close enough to give you a hug or bring you some bread or something.

Sorry I haven't found and checked in sooner....It is great to know where he is and who he is with, but still it is such a shock to us who are left behind. My heart goes out to you and all your family, Love Ya! Chris
