On Friday, Mom, Theresa and I took a trip to the Oquirrh Mountain temple together. It is a gorgeous temple by the way.
It was so nice to be there with them. As I sat there thinking about what it must be like for my mother to be attending the temple with 2 of her daughters, I thought about how awesome it was to be in the temple with Michael before he went on his mission. I look forward to someday being there with all my boys! I pray that day will come. I only have 3 children. Mom had 8 and raised them pretty much on her own.
She has 6 that have been married and sealed in the temple now.
That is pretty dang good odds if you ask me. Mom is a wonder!
I just love being with my little sister. She and I have been so close for so long now. Even when we were little and fighting like cats and dogs, I think we both knew deep down inside that we would never be able to stay away from eachother. She is so special to me. I love her like crazy (even though she has a hard time being quiet even in the temple....always cracking jokes;). Luckily Mom didnt pinch us to get us to behave like she used to do in Sacrament meeting when we were little girls. ( I guess we have learned to tone it down...I dont think she even noticed). I just really wish Regina could have been there. So, next trip will be to the Draper Temple with Regina too. Cant wait. We are going to make this a monthly tradition for us girls!
I love living in Utah, so close to family and so many temples.
And now that I am working on my grandmothers family history, we will be able to take those names with us to do their work.
I love to see the temple I'm going there someday...again....soon!
