My heart is aching for you today. Worst day ever... but becomes the greatest blessing your family and son will ever experience. Time does pass and it has gone quickly for me. Garrett has been gone 9-1/2 months and I'm worried it's going by too fast! Good luck these next few weeks when your emotions are "raw." You will live for and LOVE Mondays when you hear from him each week and see how much he's learning and growing.
Get ready for the longest week of your life! Waiting for that first letter is HARD! But soon you will be saying "What? Another week has gone by?" and time will fly. Hang in there Watkins family and be prepared to receive the special blessings that will come from having a missionary in the field! Lots of love from The Coopers
