The night before Valentine's Day
1978 Gloria had a dream of a beau
tiful dark haired dark eyed little girl. It was the night Joseph's big sister, Elizabeth Dawn Taggart, was born. When the call came from LDS Social Services in Idaho Falls 2 weeks later, to come pick up our little girl, the whole community of Grace Idaho was abuzz with the news.
We were "pregnant" with Joseph for almost four more years. When he came, our family was complete.
Within days we moved to Salt Lake City (to our present home) and began an adventure together. Elizabeth and Joseph have enjoyed and endured, and laughed and loved, tickeled and tramped around together ever since.
Just a couple of weeks ago we learned Elizabeth was pregnant with her third. A wonderous thing and a miracle in it's own right. Joseph gets to be "Uncle Joe" again. What a delight to see in the Grandkids the same wonder that occured 25 years ago when a brother and sister came together and started the common educational experience called family. Valentines day is always special because of Elizabeth's birthday. But every day is great when you have a brother/sister who loves you.
We celebrated Gloria's folk's anniversary today in Logan. The children and grandchildren all made scrapbook pages with photos and love notes and presented them to Don and Barta. Family is a treasure more important than gold.
