Today was a wonderful, emotional day for our family.  Cotton entered the MTC today.  First our family ate lunch at Brick Oven.  The waitress gave Elder Fitzsimmons a goodie bag with two cookies and two suckers for him to share with his first companion (luckeeeeeeeee).  At 12:45 p.m. we pulled up to the curb and Elder Fitzsimmons was greeted by missionaries who helped him with his bags and escorted him away.  Cotton was nervous and excited, he spotted two friends among the missionaries who were greeters and this comforted me.  What a blessing to give Elder Fitzsimmons back to our Heavenly Father for two years to find those who are prepared and waiting to hear the glad news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Cotton's favorite scripture is Jacob 4:6, take a minute to read this and feel comforted that he is right where he has prepared his whole life to be.
