Last night my sweet mother in law was kind enough to watch my 4 munckins so that Carson and I could go on a date. Our first thought was to go to the temple, (she might not have realized she was getting into such a time commitment since we would have to travel to St. George). Going to the temple was something on my "I will never get to do that again because I have triplets" list, but luckily my list is being proved wrong daily. We decided to do sealings and it was a great experience. Our sealer had no idea that we had brand new triplets at home, but he must have been inspired to give us some advice. He told us that the Lord is always mindful of us in our situations, and though we may not know why we have the challenges that we face in life the Lord has a plan for us. He also told us that when life seems too hard for us to manage, the Lord will not necessarily take away the challenges, but he will make us stronger so that we can handle them.
It was just what I needed to hear, and it is something that I will have to remember for those hard days when I want to give up.
The temple is always such a peaceful and uplifting place, and I am so glad that we got a chance to go.
