"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

The BIG day

Lance and his mom drove out to the temple and met me when I came out.

My little family

Last Tuesday May 26, 2009 I attended the temple and received my endowments. This is My immediate family. My sister came and surprised everyone except me from Utah. My brother and sis in law were here from Idaho. It was nice to have my whole family there. The temple was the most awesome and spiritual experience. I'm so thankful for what the temple teaches and for the spirit I felt while inside. I'm glad I've made it this far. I look forward to the future when My family can be sealed together.
