Today, I took out my baby picture so that my in laws could see what I looked like at just a few months. I dare say I was a cute baby! Anyway my mom and my dad were in the picture too...and I am the spitting imagine of my dad. Like carbon copy type of image. Thank goodness he's a good looking man!

Anyway getting out that picture I also came across my mom's book of thoughts that she wrote while she was on her mission for church in Argentina. Reading this book filled my heart with love for my Mom. For getting a look at how she felt about the gospel, about people, about life. The more I read, the more I realized how alike we really are. I may not have inherited her blonde hair (though I did get the whiter than white complexion), but I have my Mom's heart. I have her personality, her love for others. (and shopping, parties, and decorating) Though there are many things that I hope I don't pass onto my own children, I hope I can pass on the heart that my Mom has given me.

Today I feel closer to my Mom and miss her more than ever.

I bet that was really special to read. It's so interesting to get a look into our parents lives when they were younger. =)
