This past week-end has been absolutely amazing. So many emotions/feelings have run through my heart. It is an experience to marry off a child, let alone your oldest and only daughter. I do have to say that it has been a wonderful experience. I loved being the mother of the bride. I have had a ton of fun planning and pulling off this wedding. Carly was so easy going, which made things nice and I truly enjoyed myself. Her Temple sealing is hard for me to express and put into words. I was so overcome with love for our Heavenly Father and his beautiful plan and ALL that it entails. It was so overwhelming to be in the Temple with all of my siblings and their spouses and others that I love so much. My Dad was able to perform their sealing he was so tender/emotional and there was such a sweet spirit there. Pure Joy - I felt like my heart was going to burst!!!! It was a beautiful day and I am so blessed!!!
Sunday evening when things had calmed down a little, Tim and I were able to talk about our amazing week-end. We both had an overwhelming sense of gratitude and thankfulness for family and friends that eased our burden in so many ways. When you think about all the things that have to take place to actually pull off a wedding our family and friends were there from the beginning to the end. We couldn't have done it with out you, we are so thankful for you and thankful for the many hours that you spent in our families behalf.
WE LOVE YOU!!!
