We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Coming Full Circle

Weather looks the same as the day I was married..rainy and dark  Lukas remembered our picture and yelled, that's where you stood mommy!

Also bittersweet to see a couple getting married on this day, and having had to sit through a "happy family" video while my mom was there felt awkward. Like sitting and watching what could have been while possessing the strongest realization ever that it was not that way, nor will be because of so many unspoken conversations that will never be spoken so that hurt feelings may finally be healed. But it is what it is. They chose what they chose based on their abilities and choices and capacities. And those capacities vary from neighbor to family member, due to lost baggage. Oh well.  The best part was that my kid got to see where our pictures come from, and see the massive edifice where Jared and I got married. And feel Virginia rain on his face.

Even in the rain, even when it's dark, there is no building as beautiful as one of Heavenly Father's temples. Just remember, it's always warm and bright inside. It makes us want to go inside as often as we can to feel that warmth and light because it makes us think of Heavenly Father and His heavenly home.
