Photos, Missionaries & Fatherhood

My thoughts and feelings as I read the mission events of Miss Kate, oops, I mean Sister O’Reilly and reflect upon my life, my actions, and my role as a Husband, Dad, and now Grandfather.

Michael Leavitt

Michael Leavitt is a long time friend of Sister O’Reilly. She wrangled me into the Canyon View Junior High play system to sew 7 costumes for my Daughter Jessica in her minor role in The Music Man and then the rest is history. Together we have produced some incredible costumes including a giraffe, crocodile, an incredible stilt walker, and my very favorite... Lumiere. Along the way we have procured antique cars, and installed a human flying system so that those much more diminutive than us could soar across the stage. Once I learned to climb inside Miss Kate’s fabulous brain and see a glimpse of her vision, then I could help work to pull it off. Our efforts have been reqarding, but have comewith great sacrifices of time and effort. But this is what has made them so precious and dear. Sacrifice truly does bring forth great blessings!!!

Sister O’Reilly, What a joy it has been to read your daily messages and then have the opportunity to format them for the internet and seek out at least one image to help convey the thought of which you are writing about. I love reading the culture shocks that you are experiencing, yet saddened to read about the health issues of which both you and your companion are enduring. I also applaud your desire to wake up with each new day and give it your very best. HEADACHES - As you know, I too endure extreme headaches and most people have no real understanding of the excruciating pain that goes along with them. When you speak of them, I too start to feel ill. Is it stress? Is it lack of good sleep? Is it too much work? Is it from a bad diet? Or is it a combination of any...
