As Tim Preston's Mom said to us when she was sending one of her sons on his mission: "How can something so good be so hard?!"
We do miss our sons, daughters, (and for us now granddaughter) when they are gone on missions...but the promise from Pres. Hinckley that we often told our missionaries: "You will be blessed every day for the rest of your life for serving a mission."
True...but we still count the days.
Love, Los Petersen - Argentina for 6 more weeks from today.
