Sorry I haven't written in a while, things have been busy with traveling down to Salt Lake City to visit some friends, go hiking and explore the Salt Lake Comic Convention. As we drove home, I've tried to think about something pleasant to write about this place because I really was having a hard time wanting to come back. I really dreaded going to work and getting my schedule, getting involved in my church calling again and having Boy start school and shaving his goatee. I was not coming back to a happy place in my opinion. Not to mention, Boy and I are both a little sick with the "con funk" from being around so many people. Bleh.

Going back to work, I had a typical day. By the time I got home I didn't want to do anything except sit and nap. However, I had written on the calendar that we were going to go to the temple that night. Ugh. How easy would it be for me to tell Boy, "We're both sick and don't feel well, not to mention I don't have time to shower and I smell like Nacho's, let's just stay home." I thought about it all night as I was getting ready, but I held my tongue and we went.

I almost forgot what to do, it had been so long since I have been to the temple. It was my first time doing a session at the temple in this area, the temple had been closed due to cleaning and we haven't gotten around to going because of our vacation. Still thinking I smelled of Nacho's, by the end of the session, I am glad we went. It was so relaxing and nice to be able to sit and forget everything outside the temple for moment and remember the big picture. The latest update they have done to the session was really interesting too. There were changes they made that helped me understand things a lot better. It was calm and peaceful as we dwelt in the house of the Lord and as we left, Boy and I both felt better not only spiritually and mentally, but our throats were a lot less sore. (Might have been the cinnamon peppermint we ate too...hehehe)

We went out to ice cream after at The Cocoa Bean, which might be my new favorite place, and Boy had commented at least twice that I looked so happy. I was. I am! Because I know that I can have a family that will be together forever. I know that I am loved and I am so grateful for the Gospel in my life. You can't find joy like this anywhere else in the world.
