Welcome Home Sean!

My husband and I were so excited for Sean's arrival from Brazil!
He had been traveling for over 24 hours to get here.
A nice lady named Dorothy, who was sitting beside us, offered to take our photo and our reunion photos with Sean :)

People started coming down the escalator.
Someone asked us if our son was tall with blonde hair.
They said that he helped a lady out by holding her baby the whole flight.
Finally, we saw him!!!
What a great feeling that was, after 2 long years!

A nice, tearful long hug for Mom....

and one for Dad :)

It's so wonderful to be reunited again!

It was dark when we arrived home, so you can't see the signs very well.

We took a photo the next day.
Welcome home!
Elder Horst has served the people of Brazil for two years.

Thank you for sharing a huge part of my personal life with me.
Now it's back to sewing :)
Several people have told me they want to buy a new sewing machine and wonder what I like about my Bernina 750 QE.
I always reply to everyone who leaves a comment on my blog.
Sometimes I can't though, because your name isn't connected to your email address.
On Monday, I will review what I love about my sewing machine, the Bernina 750 QE.

  1. Thanks for sharing your pictures of your son coming home! It is a little taste of heaven, isn't it? Tell him thank you for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in Brazil. (PS--loved your sewing room!)

  2. Hi Cynthia - our missionary has been home for 3-1/2 years now - he just got married before Christmas. I'll NEVER forget that sweet reunion at the airport, so I know how you're feeling right now! Sounds like we have a lot in common with family, the Church, & quilting. Plus, all my family lives in Sacramento. I'm heading there later this week for a visit that I'm really looking forward to. So glad I found your blog!
