Quite Possibly One of the Greatest Days of Motherhood
Today we were able to go to the Bountiful Temple with TJ for him to received his endowment. The girls did baptisms, while we went through the session. It was one of the most rewarding moments as a mother. It has been a struggle to get to this point, but in that moment, everything was worth it, and family was the only thing that mattered. Suddenly I didn't care about his room that is never clean, or how mad I was when he had 3 cars at a time, or his obsession to own every shoe ever made. I was reminded of what is truly important. He has been a good kid, not without his mistakes, like most of us, but he has made himself worthy to enter the house of the Lord. I am so very proud of you TJ. It was evident to us too that our dear Chelsea was there with us. It makes the whole temple experience even greater when you have someone on the other side of the veil. I could feel how happy she was for TJ, and just as proud of him as the rest of us.
We were blessed enough to have Rich's whole family (minus one sister and brother in law), my mom, my Aunt & Uncle, and our good Bishop Hill and his wife share this day with us.
It is a day that I will never forget, and I hope that TJ felt all our love and support for him.
Ever since he was little, it has been hard for him to take a picture facing the sun! So cute :)
The suit he is wearing, is the same suit that Rich came home from his mission in!
Rich and I were married March 22, 1988 in the Salt Lake Temple. Our family quickly grew to 6, with our 4 children in 9 years. For the past 18 years we have lived in Syracuse, and really feel like this is home. Family is what it is all about!
