I called my sister this morning. We had a nice, long talk. We’ve been close most of our lives, even when we didn’t live close and had families to raise.
We have a great relationship. We have been there for each other through thick and thin. We encourage each other, celebrate our triumphs, talk over ideas, and appreciate each other unconditionally. Ours is a remarkable kinship!
I think a major reason for all this is because of the way we were raised. Our parents were good, strong, loving people who loved the Lord, His Church, and the gospel. They came from humble beginnings and thoroughly appreciated the blessings that they had as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They instilled that love of God, church, and country in all their children. So much so that every one of their children remained strong in their testimonies of the gospel and active in the church! What a great legacy to leave your posterity.
And that legacy continues as their children strive to raise their families within the light of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, the church reinstated with the same organization that existed in it when Jesus Himself set it up while He lived on the earth over 2,000 years ago!
