I just have to share with all of you the first 2 tender mercies that happened today. The first one was while Kyle was checking in at the counter, it was taking a while and a supervisor came up and asked where Kyle was going on his mission. When he said Brazil she got a big smile and said that she was actually from Brazil and that her son was on a mission in Mexico. She then proceeded to tell the agent to give us all escort passes to get through security so we could say goodbye at the gate. That gave us an extra hour with Kyle. I was so grateful. The second one came as we were getting ready to go through security. I have my 8 year old nephew staying with us right now as he was a little anxious about going through security and as all of our moods were kinda gloomy I tried to lighten things up by telling him that he had to go through security in his underwear. This was his reply, "But Randi, I don't have any underwear on! I'm wearing my swimming suit!!!"
Thank goodness for tender mercies to bring a smile to our faces!
