Today I had the priviledge of escorting my younger sister through the temple to receive her own endowments. What a treasured moment in my memory! I love her dearly and am so excited that she was finally able to take that step, bringing her closer to God and His blessings. The temple is such a beautiful, wonderful, sacred place that I enjoy going to [less often now that I have Serra, but it will improve!] I love it because of what it means to me, what it symbolizes, the feelings surrounding it, and the presence of my Savior. I like to think that my parents are there with me, too, and I often feel that they are. I am so grateful that because of the temple and the blessings promised there, that my parents were able to keep their covenants so that we could be an eternal family. I miss them and long for the day to be with them again, but I know it will happen... it will happen!
