Old Nauvoo

Old Nauvoo-I had one of those moments today where everything just felt right in my world. As if I was exactly where God wanted me to be and he was pleased. Interestingly, it wasn’t because I was where I wanted to be. I had wanted so badly to be at Lainies sealing. I love that girl and have been so grateful for her frienshiip with Taylor and treasure my friendship with Dori, but traveling to and from Utah and leaving kids here without anyone ever old enough to drive didn’t feel right. So. despite my longing to be elsewhere I found peace and joy right where I was. The temple with Drew was lovely, the trail of hope with the kids was beautiful, wandering old Nauvoo with the Brooks was simple and happy, watching the pageant again was powerful and waking up and falling asleep with the temple shining through my bedroom window helps me to remember each moment was is truly important. I am so grateful for the temple and the way it binds families together. I love the temple.
