It really has been a tough week for our family. The holidays have been a lot harder than I thought they would be, on all of us. The kids struggled some, but mostly I have of course. We were going to have our New Years Eve party with the Rowbury's like we have the last 2 years, but Jackson got sick with the stomach junk, so we just stayed home and played some games and hung out.
On New Years day we went out to the cemetery to check on our UofA snowdude. When we drove into the cemetary, we saw that someone on the other side of the cemetery put up a huge Christmas Tree. So we turned left and drove down this other way to look at the tree. While we were stopped, a completely white dove walked across the road. John drove up a little more, and the dove didn't fly away, it just walked slowly. We sat and watched it for a little while knowing that Marcus sent that dove to us. You really don't see white doves, much less in the middle of winter in Utah. What a beautiful sign of love he sent to us to let us know he is with us.
