The Trip to the MTC
We were advised in out letter not to take pictures in front of the MTC, as time would be limited. So, we stopped at the temple grounds across the street. It was lovely and I was grateful for the quiet peace there.
After we said our farewells at the curb, it looked like Taylor was going to cry. She turned away from me and said, "Okay, enough of that, you can go now." I turned away a little stricken, wanting to cradle her and hold her and make everything better. Even so, recognizing her attempt to not cry, I crawled into the car. I was worried. She has always been my "shadow" she has always joked about it, but really...she has been. Then, suddenly, in typical Taylor style, she was shrieking with delight and running to another sister missionary (apparently a friend) along the curb of the MTC and jumping up and down in a hug. They were visiting excitedly as we pulled away. I was grateful to see her so happy as my mental picture of her. What a blessing for a worry-wart mother!!
Here are some of the pictures we took of my little Sister Missionary!!
