- There are plenty of things that are of our Father
- I now had the opportunity to experience things I would never have had the chance in our premortal existence
- I now had a chance to grow and to prove myself to Father
- And to top it off, I would now get to do all of that while being placed into an amazing family and later being blessed to have marvelous friends to help me along
26 years of that. I'm not ever quite sure how I'm doing. Often I know I fall very far behind. I am greatly flawed and sadly lacking in so much. But many blessings have told me that Father is pleased with me. I hope to continue living and learning and growing so that He may always be pleased with me. And I know that if I do all I can and if I will follow my Savior and keep His commandments, He will reach over the distance, making up for what I could never accomplish on my own, and thus help me return to our Father--where I hope that I and my family (present and future) will be blessed with exaltation.
