Reason 82: The Temple

Saturday, June 12, 2010.

Today I went through the St. George LDS Temple to receive my endowment.  It was incredible.  Definitely as life changing as I anticipated.

This is Jason and I afterwards.  I'm so glad I was able to go through with my very best friend in the world.   He is so wonderful and makes me happy beyond belief.  How did I get so lucky?

And here is my awesome family (old and new!).  It was so great for everyone that was able to come.  Also there (but not pictured) was Aunt Sylvia, Danae, Nate, and Skyler.  This small gathering of people made it a truly memorable and incredible day and I am grateful to each one of you for your attendance, support, and well-wishes.  

It is days like this where you just want to shout to the world that you KNOW the truth, you KNOW how to spend eternity with your family, and you feel more love and joy than you could have ever imagined.  I just look at the picture, see the smiles, and know the stories behind each on of them- and it brings me so much joy.  

Thanks to Great-Grandma Lena for trekking over to the temple to be there as well.  She will turn NINETY YEARS OLD in October, but still is able to support each one of us (my mother is her first grandchild of 37 grandkids, I am the sixth great-grandchild of 107ish great- grandkids and she also has two great-great-grandkids.  Talk about amazing!)

I want to write about each person there, but the late hour and filling day is causing my brain to shut off.  Life is so good.  SO GOOD. I am so lucky to have my family and to be marrying the most amazing man in the world.  One week from today we begin our journey... and I can't wait.
