Andrea and Diogo

Today is such a beautiful, wonderful day. Today is the day my daughter Andrea and Yoho are going to the temple to be sealed for time and all eternity. I wish I could be there for this momentous day, but alas I cannot. However, I wanted them to go ahead and go and not wait for us to come back because it is just too important. I am thrilled and excited for them. I am so grateful that they are following Heavenly Father's plan. I am grateful that they can be together forever.

Last week they both went to the Provo Temple to get their endowments. The Provo Temple is

nestled in the foot of the mountains of the Wasatch front. It is a lovely, peaceful place to go. My sweet Valerie was her escort and Yoho's Dad was his.

Today they will be going to the Salt Lake Temple, the great prototype of all temples in the last days and the mother of all temples even though it is not the first.

Congratulations to my darling girl. Papa and I are so happy for you.

You are such an amazing example to me. Thank you.

Congratulations to them on such an important and wonderful decision.

I know that one day when we go on our mission, life will go on for our children and there will be events that we will miss. You help me to know I can do it.

Thought about you and your DH while we were sitting in the temple for A and Y's sealing. It was beautiful! Wish you both could have been there but know you were where you needed to be. The Lord will bless you for your many additional sacrifices as you have missed things that you wish you could have been here for (not just the sealing, but babies too.)
