i love to see the temple

i went inside on saturday
it was one of the most beautiful days of my life.

i love the LDS church and every single thing that we do and stand for.
sometimes i just want to climb on top of a mountain and scream
so that they can all feel this way too.

i'm thankful for my mom and dad, and ron and kim, and what great examples they are to me and scotty. i'm so glad the six of us got to share this special day together.
we seriously have the best families. i love them. i love how scotty is a part of the barnes family and how i am a part of the marx family. we have twice the fun! seriously, this weekend was perfect. i love the temple and i can't wait to go back. i love the church. i don't talk about my feelings for the church enough. but it is the greatest thing of my life. the church is the reason why i am such a happy fool all the time. i'm grateful that it gives me the opportunity to live with my cute family for all eternity, and i'm grateful for the doctrines and principles that i use to shape my life. i'd be a crazy mess without them. i love that it answers my deepest questions, like where i came from and why i am here. i love the word of wisdom, i love my new temple garments, and i love the importance of the family. and i can't help but mention how much i adore President Thomas S. Monson. He truly is a man of God. I had the privilege of being in the same room as him today, and i felt as if my heart was on fire.
i have so much to be thankful for.
i am glad i belong to a church that allows me to be sealed to this cute thing for time and all eternity
10 days, people. 10 days.
