When we left Hyrum at the MTC on Wednesday, one of the first thoughts that came to my mind (after the tears subsided) was, "I can do hard things." I didn't know in July during the Trek when that statement would be a strength to me. I figured it would be some far off life event, many years from now. But the Lord, with His tender mercies, has given me a way to have confidence in any difficult situation I find myself - even sending my oldest son on a 2 year mission to teach the people of California about Jesus Christ.
I can do hard things!
