As we were rushing out the door this morning to go to the temple, I realized I still hadn't written anything for today.
We did sealings today. I had been endowed for seven years before Brigham and I were married. After we were married, being a proxy for sealings took on a whole new meaning for me. I liked doing sealings when I was single, but didn't have a full understanding of what being sealed means. (I probably still don't.) Today, as I was sitting in the sealing room, I was imagining having another child sealed to us--a soft little hand on top of ours.
Then I thought back to when Olivia was sealed to us. (She screamed the whole time!) Knowing she was sealed to us, to an entire, enormous family, changed the way I felt about her, about family, and about love. I can't wait to re-experience that, to have another child join our family, to learn even more about the sealing power in such a personal way.
