|Colbie Kingsley on her way home.|
The highlight of our week was knowing that Colbie Kingsley is now safe at home with her family. Although we were not there to hold and love her, we did the next best thing and Skyped with the family the day after they got home. My sister Shauna came to Las Vegas last week to take new born pictures. She was explaining to 2 yr. old Cade that she was Nana's sister. "Do you know where Nana is?" she asked. Cade ran over and pointed to the computer, "Nana is in there!"
It's Father's Day here in Samoa. It is not only a one day celebration but started Friday afternoon and will continue through Monday, a National Holiday honoring fathers. I count as one of my great blessings having a father, Paul R. Milligan, who took the time to teach me important life lessons that continue to bless my life. I also was blessed with an amazing father for my children, Elder Ellsworth, the love of my life, who taught our kids to work hard, and who has always had an unwavering testimony of the gospel. To our three sons, and one son-in-law, Happy Father's Day to you! I love you for the great care you take of our grandchildren, for your hard work to support them, and for teaching them the gospel and correct principles that will bless and protect them. You are all truly amazing fathers!

As mentioned before, one of my favorite things about working in the office is getting to know the missionaries. Friday we said Tofa to Elders Powelson and Roberts. They mentioned that learning to love people unconditionally is one of the lessons they learned serving a mission. If they just take that home, their time was well spent. I love them and wish them the best.
