He gave me a sweet card (he apologized for buying it, he said that he didn't want me to make my own card and Tammy is at her Dad's right now so he couldn't have her make it for him, too funny). And a box of each of my favorite treats (he said he wanted to get me a box of chocolates but since I am allergic to tree nuts it's hard to find a box of chocolates that won't land me in the hospital, wouldn't that be a fun Mother's Day).
On the way to church Tammy called. It was so good to hear voice, I talk to her all the time, but I still love it. School is going fine and she can't wait to come back in a couple of weeks. Sharing custody long distance sure isn't easy. Which is why we decided to move back to Utah. I know how hard it is to grow up in the Army moving around (and we didn't even move around a lot when I was growing up). It has been nice for Tammy to not have to move around and change schools, but it sure will be wonderful to be with her soon. Jacob called his mom before church and after church I got to talk to my mom and my stepmom.
Church was great. We all got an envelope with a small booklet by Elder Boyd K. Packer entitled Blessings on the Hand of Women, a Dove Chocolate bar (no nuts! Yay!) and a bookmark. The bishop explained that if we looked at our bookmarks we would see a poem, and at the bottom of the poem initials. The initials represented the member of the bishopric who wrote the poem. The one I got was written by Brother Gray who is the 1st counselor in the bishopric.
