Farewells, Goodbyes, and “See You Soon!”

This is my first blog post as a proud and slightly teary-eyed missionary momma!  I have the honor of being the caretaker of this blog while Sister Aure is on her mission in Jacksonville, Florida. Sister Aure gave a beautiful talk on Sunday, and there were so many wonderful family and friends who were able to come and support her. She talked about how to prepare to serve a mission and had us laughing and crying with her wonderful wit and super sweet testimony. Sister Aure’s brother Ethan gave his first talk in sacrament that day on how to be a missionary be example.  His sister’s face shone proudly as only a big sister’s can, and it touched my mother’s heart to see them share a sweet hug after she sat back down. Ashtyn’s friend Bret wrote a little bit about that special bond in this blogpost.

After sacrament, we all gathered for food, reminiscing and advice for future Sister Aure.  There are so many people who love and support her, and I know they will continue to do so while she is away serving the Lord.
