Every day I consider myself blessed to have been Garrett's mother! Having him away from home has been hard. I think what makes it easier is realizing how happy he is. How he is growing. He has many valiant people around him who strive to be the best they can be! This is a mother's greatest joy! Seeing him thrive in the environment he is in makes not having him here in our Vegas world, bearable. We love him. He is our Nephi! We miss him. But he is being prepared for a great life and a great work! We rejoice in his testimony. We thank the Lord for his goodness and dedication to being so good. We are grateful that he has had roommates that sustain him and are with him in the cause of truth. He is missed by so many here in Vegas! His love for others and for life is contagious! His attitude makes everything seem fun! He has left an impression on many hearts. I am excited to see what great things the Lord has in store for him. We can't wait to see him over Thanksgiving!!!!!
