One year ago today was one of the most difficult days in our families lives ~ Elder Hayden May left our family for two years to bring other families into the gospel for eternity. Sounds like a small sacrifice until you are asked to make it. For those missionary mommas who have kiddos serving, the loss you feel is like a piece of you until they return. You are excited, proud and heartbroken all in one emotion.
Fast forward, but not really fast, to a year later. Your missionary is thriving, their testimony is solid and strong. You know that the sacrifice is worth it. Doesn't change how much you miss them - only that they are doing what the are supposed to be doing and the Lord is well pleased.
Here are a couple of photos from a year ago, the pictures that we put in Elder Hayden May's hump day package (one which will explain why we call it Hump Day) and a collage of some of his best pictures over the past 12 months.
Love him, miss him so but oh, so proud of him! We love you Elder Hayden! Happy One-Year Mark. Enjoy
|Happy Hump Day Elder May! We sure love you!!|
