A Grateful Mom

Today, I received the sweetest email from some people in Elder Martin's ward.  He and his companion had dinner at their home and the couple was kind enough to take pictures and send to us.  I am so grateful for kind people that know how much we miss our sons and take the time to share pictures.  It's always good to see that handsome, smiling face!

This picture was taken in the kitchen, does that mean they did the dishes?
