We went to the Fort Collins Temple open house. I am very excited to get a temple two hours from my house.
I miss the temple. When I was first married, I would go every week. When I had my first baby, a few times I woke up around 4 or 4:30 to feed her, and I got ready went to the temple first thing in the morning.
Later on, in Nevada, the temple was a little over an hour away, but we tried to go once a month. Sometimes, we would switch off tending kids while we went.
I tell you that because I want to relate how important the temple is. It’s where I feel the most peace. Where I feel at home.
And now we live further away from a temple than we ever have. But I miss going more often and I’m excited for the opportunity to be able to easily drive to a temple and back in a day.
It was good to have our family in the temple together. After that I had the privilege of walking through the open house with some friends and answering their questions.
The temple feels like heaven.
