Temple Weekend

This was a special weekend for me. I suggested this trip last week to
my parents. My dad has been off chemo for over a month now. Next week
he meets again with his oncologist so we presume he will start back up
again next week. So this was a last chance weekend for him. The drive
is very taxing on him. So I proposed going and staying a night in
Omaha and that is what we did.

Friday afternoon I took Sariah over to Rob and Jessi's because they
were going out to James' work and were going to take her with them to
him. This saved me a little time. Then I picked up my parents and my
sister Meg- who tagged along for a weekend away.

I was able to go by myself Friday night to the temple. Then Saturday,
I got up early and snuck up again. After that I went back and got
everyone else. We took Meg to the zoo and then my parents and I went
to the temple together.

It was a special and amazing time. I know that there is a good chance
this was the last time I would be able to go with my dad. I can't even
describe how special and sacred this time was for me. It was more than
worth all the sacrifices it took to get there.

My daddy and me:

I believe that is heaven on earth. When I look around in the temple and see my loved ones, I get a glimmer of what a glorious reunion it will be when I see them again.
I'm so grateful for the Plan and my knowledge of it. That knowledge has brought me through some very trying times...and I know it will you too.
What a special memory for you.
