Today Forrest was ordained an Elder in the Melchizedek Priesthood. I can't believe it happened... just like that (we've been waiting 10 years, but really it was "just like that.") I am so proud of him and his accomplishments. God is good, He hears and answers prayers and guides my life. In all His wisdom He has brought us through triumphs and challenges to bring us just where we need to be, and I am grateful for all of it. Patience, persistence, faith, and endurance. I think I finally peeled off the shell I've put up after all these years of waiting and, ok, after putting the kids to bed I bawled like a baby. I can't believe this day is here.
