Wonderful Weekend

High: Standing in Holy Places with the family this weekend. It has to be one of the absolute coolest experiences to escort a young couple to the Temple as they prepare to marry. Brittny has already expressed how I feel about being together with ALL the family and how much I desire that we are all together through eternity. Maybe a new family motto should be "No man left behind". As I sit in the Temple I just can't imagine not being ALL together someday.

Brittny sent me this quote which I think expresses my sentiments:
With your companion, make it a family objective to all be together in the celestial kingdom. Strive to make your home a little bit of heaven on earth so that after this life is over, you may be able to say:

We are all here!
Father, mother, sister, brother,
All who hold each other dear.
Each chair is filled—
We’re all at home. …
We’re all—all here.

-Ezra Taft Benson, “The Honored Place of Woman,” Ensign, Nov 1981, 104
The next high was witnessing the blessing of Samuel and being again together as a family. I am so grateful for the power of the Priesthood and grateful to Brittny and Eric for the opportunity to witness the growth of a new Eternal family.

Low: I was going to say having to drive back and forth to Utah so many times but I have realized that it has given me a great opportunity to be with family. So can't complain.
