Sealed For Time & All Eternity

 We finally made it! My goal has been accomplished and through all the "hard" work that was put into this goal it blessed us more than words can describe. This past year has been very family oriented and I know because we were living the right way we were extremely blessed as a family and as a couple. I hear things all the time about how families are blessed in extraordinary ways and now I have finally experienced it. When I look back at 2011 I always think we did more as a family than ever before in that year. Sad to say, but we have definitely come a LONG way. Going to the temple was one of the greatest days of my life and I am so blessed to experience the joy from attending. 
On the day of our sealing it was cold and yucky outside, but nothing could damper the spirit because I felt like our little family had an extra bright glow on that day. Going through with Clay was something I have wanted since we have met, but being able to go through with my children was something that I cannot put words to. It was extremely spiritually uplifting and my heart was full of an overwhelming sense of love and accomplishment. That I was able to prepare my family to go to the temple is just a huge blessing that I am eternally grateful for. 
 Almost eight years completely together, six 1/2 years married, ups and downs a long the way but in the end it was all worth it and forever will be.

I love to see the temple I finally went inside someday
I felt the holy spirit and listen to what the spirit had to say
For the temple is a holy place where we were sealed together
As a mother and wife I'll prepare the way
~A family is forever~
