I can't describe...

I can't describe how wonderful it was to go to the temple to receive my endowment last Saturday. My younger brother Ryan also went through that day. To have so many of the people I love most in one room was one of the most comforting feelings. I left the temple with renewed faith in God's plan for our lives and for our families. We really are so blessed.



I can't describe how much fun it was to have all the temple goers over for a luncheon at my grandparents' house. Fabulous people, Grandma Sycamore's bread, Joshua bonding with my grandpa, Ellie eating fake fruit, lounging in the front room just talking to those fabulous people-- It was a perfect afternoon.



ps. Can you believe how big Mae is getting? She is officially six months old! And those three women (I cannot call myself that with a straight face by the way) in that last picture are three of the original four suitemates from my freshman year at BYU. It's been seven and a half years since we first arrived in Cougarland. Craziness!

What do you say to that--congratulations? Way to go? All of the above? Anyway, I'm really happy for you too. Yes!

It might seem strange but I have held abit of anticipation inside of me for when you went to the temple to receive your endowments. I knew you'd love it and have thought provoking insights that I'd love to sit in the Celestial room and share thoughts and feelings on the blessings of eternity and the mysteries that are slowly unfolding before us. I'm so happy for you. Words just can't describe it. :)

Congrats Jaclyn. Truly one of the greatest blessings of my life was when I went through just over a year and a half ago now. You'll love the comfort that comes! I concur, such a blessing in our mundane lives!

P.S. Hope your avoiding the "pink slip" stress!
