KIND OF GREAT

I just got home from a Stewart family reunion. There's nothing like one of those yearly events to remind me of what a slacker I am. Want proof? Let me give you a rundown of who's who in my clan. We have a Federal Judge, a current National Best Seller, a B-2 B pilot, an Adjutant General. We have three young men serving their God and fellow men in Brazil, three having recently returned from Japan, Russia and Brazil and a soldier father who just left his beautiful wife and three children under three, to serve for a year in Afghanistan. We have a D.C. lobbyist, several Stake Presidents, former CIA operatives and military pilots. We have flight school instructors, lawyers, District Judges and many successful small business owners.



And then we have the mothers who raised them, the sisters who support them, the cousins who adore them and the wives who are the wind beneath their wings.

Of which I am one.

Hmm. I think I might be kind of great after all.

I love that!
I'm sure you are the wife of all of the above greatness!

I love this post.

But I feel so stupid... what's a Stake Persident?

Cherie said...

Sounds like you guys have quite a clan and I have no doubt that you are one of the great women!

Julianna, a Stake President is a religious leader in the LDS church, acting as steward over a group several thousand in numbers. Each ward has around 300-500 people, and each stake has about 10 wards. Ours is a volunteer organization, too, with all of our leaders and members serving in positions without pay, unless you count blessings from Heaven. :)

I DID take pictures...just didn't POST pictures. See? Told you I'm a slacker.
