We are so excited, as can be expected, to have a date set, and to know that our entire family will be sealed together on May 8th. I'm so happy that I have such a wonderful Mother's Day gift to look forward to. I went for a walk today and thought about what this means to me. To know that I will be sealed for all time and eternity to such a special man. I can't believe that we've only been married for 3 years. I thought about the many experiences that we've already been through together. Just to list a few...
my Dad's fight with cancer and his death, two pregnancies and births, one miscarriage, many family home evenings, and Isaac's appendectomy.
to me those were the big spiritual experiences, where much growth has taken place, but there have been other simpler moments where I know we've grown considerably as well. I know that I was blessed because I chose to listen to the spirit at the Fall single's conference in 2006. I shudder to think that if I hadn't I probably would have gone my way and he his. I am so glad that I have a second partner to balance me out and to talk to about ideas and goals and decisions, the first being Heavenly Father of course. It's amazed me how much we've grown as a family and as a couple in such a short time. I know that Heavenly Father truly blessed me in my choice of a spouse because he chose for me a man that was humble enough to want to learn with me. I can't wait to enjoy so many more experiences with him as our children grow older.
I am also excited that both of my older boys have chosen to be sealed to us. I know that it will make the day that much more special.
Thank you, all of you who have continued to pray for this blessing in our lives!
