Almost Summer

I have been being lazy for months. We're still here in Pocatello, but just busy. Lance's older brother, Quinn, passed away on Easter morning, after a struggle with brain cancer. It seemed long but this last challenge only lasted about a year. He was only 40 years old and has left behind 5 children. We have been blessed enough to get to spend some time in Utah with him. We have had a beautiful time with family and a reminder of what is important. I am sooo grateful for the gospel in my life! I love the plan of happiness. The hope that we can have through the Savior and His Atonement is so wonderful. When everything around us is unpredictable, hope cannot be taken away without our consent. I have hope in a better day when all things will be made right. The Lord has promised us compensation for our tears that we cannot understand. There is nothing on this earth worth giving up the blessings and promises of heaven.
