See You in the Morning

I have been enjoying my new baby Brody so much lately - especially in the morning. He is so happy at this time. I love listening to him on the monitor as he is waking up and he is making his sweet little baby sounds. The other day he was doing this and I absolutely couldn't wait to go to his room, open his door and peek over his crib to see his sweet face. I crawled out of bed and made my way across the house to where he sleeps. I walked across his room and anticipated his reaction to my presence. When he saw my face, his little eyes twinkled and he started giggling at me. I could tell that he too was excited to see me. It had only been about 4 hours since we had last been together but we both could not wait to be in each other's company again.

The picture above is one that I absolutely love. I have one hanging in my room close to my bed. My mother gave it to me shortly after I lost DeLanee and so when I look at it, I think of her. As I was going to bed the other night I was staring at that picture and thinking about how excited Brody was to see me that morning. His reaction really did make my day. Then I remembered a saying I had seen on a headstone in the cemetary one day as I was visiting DeLanee's grave. It said "See you in the morning". I really liked it. As latter-day saints we have been taught that those who are worthy will rise on the morning of the first resurrection and be given "thrones, kindoms, principalites and powers" (D&C 132.19). I couldn't help but imagine the unspeakable joy that will be in DeLanee's and I's countenance as we embrace one another and are once again in each other's presence on this morning. I pray each day that I can live worthily to come forth and be able to see her "in the morning". I can't wait to see the twinkle in her eye and yes. . .I will giggle.
