What a wonderful day! My heart is so full of happiness and gratitude. It was such a pleasure to see K and A be sealed for time and all eternity. Pres. Brent Wadsworth performed the sealing, and it was wonderful. He said some really good things that I thought, "I have to remember that," you know what happened. It was great to see K and A surrounded by family and friends who have had an impact on their lives in some way. The two of them have such good hearts, and are loved by so many people. Thank you to all who came for your support. The veil was thin as we knew A's Mom was there and so proud of the young man he has become. I was especially impressed by A's grandmother telling me that he has such a good kind heart. I had already noticed that by the tender way he treats K. So fun to see the sweet love between a beautiful young couple. I hope they will always remember how good it feels to be surrounded by loved ones in the temple, and that their happiness and love can become even stronger. So great to be in the temple with them. I look forward to being there with B and D when they find the right one. Something to look forward to!
Although the weather was warm, we had the wind off the sierras to make for some wind blown pictures. Then we were off to the church for dinner. It was beautifully set up and served by some of my good friends who worked into the night prior, and slaved away in the kitchen so I could enjoy the day without worries. (thank you, it was wonderful to know it would be done perfectly!) They even cleaned up, and delivered left overs to my house.
Next was the reception. Once again, my great friends and family had been hard at work the day before making sure every little detail was taken care of and things were in place. My good sisters took over from there, and took care of food, so I could join the party. It was fun to see so many people come and enjoy the evening. The lemonade bar was a hit, everyone seemed to think that was fun. The children enjoyed making wishes in the fountain, and I believe used every last penny available. I hope there wishes came true, as mine did. I have to say, when K said she wanted a fountain I thought she was crazy, but it was perfect. Annalee Wadsworth made a beautiful cake exactly how K wanted it, and it was so yummy. I ate way more than my share! Flowers were challenging, but with help from a good visiting teacher and friend, they turned out beautiful.
What a great party it was! My heart if so full of gratitude for the many good people that are part of my life. As I looked around that night, I just couldn't believe how truly blessed I am to be part of something so wonderful. Thank you to all who helped make the day fabulous, and who continue to bless my life with support, friendship, and love. What more could a girl want?!
