I want to say Thank You! To my parents! As Bradley D. Foster said "Parents are miracle workers". Thank you so much Mom and Dad! Thank you for your temple marriage, for the covenants you made and are keeping! Thank you for following the promptings of the Holy Ghost each day. I can now see his hand in all the lessons you teach me! Thank you for your love! Your support. For carrying me when I could not carry myself. For laughing with me. For teaching me the meaning of work. For teaching me of faith. For teaching me of Christ.
