Go Cindy!

I attended my mom's graduation commencement today.
Mom-Cindy graduated from Brigham Young University in American Studies.
My dad, Mr. Nielson, and I walked over to the Marriott Center where
we sat on the very tippy top row of the overly-crowded (hot) event center
and joined the other 25,000 graduates and family members.
I was beaming with pride!  


Today mom will officially graduate with diploma in hand and 
all of her children and grandchildren (and a few greats too!)
 will be there to cheer her on.
She deserves a huge cheering section from all of us who 
have been blessed, loved, and strengthened by her example.

I got home from the commencement and watched Lottie ride her bike while
Angus lay in the cool spring grass and my mind wandered off.
I was thinking about the significance of who we are,
what we can do with our lives no matter our age.  And in the end,
I hope my children will be proud of me as I am of my mom.

Teachings from RMN:
Catch the Wave, April 2013
Together, members and missionaries invite all to learn 
of God, of Jesus Christ, and of His gospel.
 Each inquiring individual should seek earnestly 
and pray fervently for the assurance that these things are true.
 The truth will be manifest by the power of the Holy Ghost
