Today John's sister Diana was married in the Salt Lake City Temple. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony. There was such a wonderful peaceful feeling in the Sealing Room and the Spirit reminded me how wonderful eternal marriage is. I am so thankful that I married John! He is a wonderful companion, he is so giving and selfless in our marriage. It is wonderful to have him by my side as we go through the trial of having a child with a life threatening illness.
We are so thankful for my cousin Heather who watched Erin last night and this morning so that we could attend a Celebration dinner and the Temple Sealing. We are so thankful for John's cousin Jessica who watched Cecily & Caleb while we were at the Temple Sealing. And we are so thankful for my cousins Dan & Holly who watched Cecily & Caleb so we could enjoy the Celebration Dinner as a "date night" without kids. It's tricky juggling getting babysitters lined up and arranging who will be where, but we are completely thankful for everyone's willingness to step in and help!
We had a volunteer from Kids Crew and a nurse watch Erin while we all went to Heritage Park for Diana's reception. Then I came back and hung out with Erin while John and the kids enjoyed themselves at the reception. I d0 wish though that I had been there to see Diana chuck her wedding bouquet in the little pond and to see Caleb fall into the pond. It was a very small pond and really only his shoes and pants were soaked. Poor kid. It was a good day!
