IM so blessed

Going through Temple was one of the most amazing things ever. The things you see and hear and feel are just incredible. The best part was I got to share it with people I love dearly. Its been hard not having any family to share this with (mainly Mick) but my friends are more like family to me then most of my family is LOL. I am so blessed to have the friends heavenly father has given to me. Some of them are leaving and that's hard cause they mean so much. I'm sure there will be more moving in in no time at all and that's always nice to look forward to.

Being a member of the church really opens your eyes more to the beauty and gifts of this world, and I am more grateful now then ever that I get to be apart of it. I'm so excited that Amber (my best friend and Sister from another Mr. :p) was able to come down and go through temple with me. Her and her family have been such a big blessing in my family's life. They have been a wonderful example to us and I cant believe how much they can get Mick to come around.

Mick has for the passed year shown more and more interest in the church. He ask questions now and wants to do thing with us that are church related. Going to the temple Sunday night to see the Xmas lights was a big leap for him and it was just a wonderful blessing for our family. Justin was so excited to show his dad how wonderful Christ is and all the things the Savior did for us cause he loves us. Mick listened to everything Justin had to tell him and just ate it all up. I know someday my family will receive the blessing of Mick wanting to be baptized. Then the wonderful blessing of being sealed in the temple as a eternal family.

I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for my friends and there love. My family wouldn't be the family they are if it wasn't for my friends. My friends are the greats blessing in my life and I hope you all know that.

I am so proud of you Christal. You are one of the most wonderful people I've ever met. I'm so glad I had the chance to be there in the temple Saturday with you for that experience. Something we learned when we got our new recommends last week is that perfection and worthiness are two different things. Your worthiness to enter the temple, and actually going to the temple (as often as your life allows) will bless you on your quest to achieving perfection. LOVE YOU!
