Temple Day

I just wanted to give a little run down on our family day at the Salt Lake Temple for Mikel. It was a beautiful day, just like I imagined. Tears were shed but what surprised me the most was the overwhelming feeling of joy. It was like Mikel was saying, "Don't cry, this is a happy day for me!" And it was. Each one of us came out of the temple smiling followed by a laughter-filled lunch at Olive Garden. It was the first family get-together where I wasn't pained by Mikel's absence. I simply felt even more excited and grateful to know that someday I will see her again and that she is all the more prepared for that day. :)

(Sorry I don't have a picture. My mom took one of us standing outside the temple but I guess I need to give her another tutorial on how to electronically mail pictures) ;)

Yaaay! I don't know how I missed this post when I've been keeping an eye out for it. I'm so glad it was such a special day. It sounds wonderful.
