Greatest thing....

"It's the greatest thing I've ever seen in my entire life," that is what Jordan told us when we asked him how he liked the temple. I couldn't agree more! We got to go to the Gila Valley Temple open house and we took my mom and aunt too. Having my mom there was indescribable. Standing next to her in the celestial room was overwhelming. I hope it not the only chance I have to have her there. I was so over come with emotions and happiness at that moment. I wish it didn't have to end. Not only was my mother there but to have my children there, WOW. HAPPINESS is all that comes to mind. Like Jeffery R. Holland I too can't imagine Heaven without my Husband and children.
I also can't imagine it without my mom and dad and brothers too.
I know the church is true and going to the temple only helps to strengthen my testimony that families are FOREVER! What a blessing to know that from birth. I am thankful my children will grow up knowing this. I am thankful that my children were able to feel the spirit that is within the walls of the temple at such a small age. In fact as we were leaving Jordan asked if he could buy a new suit for church the next day. He is a sweet boy with a close relationship to our Heavenly Father and I love it. (He did get a new suit and look handsome singing to me on Mother's day)
I can't wait till the other two are built so we can take the kids again! I also can't wait to go on a date with my love to this temple. It was beautiful, like all temples are!
