Rod and I have been married for 13 years as of today. It is hard to believe it has been that long because it does not feel like it. They have been wonderful years with struggles, laughter and lots of fun.
The Mesa Arizona Temple has a special place in my heart. I was living in Texas at the time and was not active at Church. I was struggling trying to figure out what I was to do. I prayed about it and also had a friends Dad give me a blessing. I moved to Arizona a few months later and lived with my friends aunt and her family until I could find a job and a place to live. I was still struggling and one day she said "I want to take you some where." So we hopped in her car and we headed down this road near her house and all I saw was the tops of the trees that go around the Temple grounds. I started crying and I knew I was doing what the Lord wanted me to do and that I needed to get active again. So a year later I went through the Temple and a year after that I started dating Rod and we were married in this BEAUTIFUL Temple.
I am so grateful for him and all that he does for our family. I am grateful for the love and friendship we share and so grateful for the family we have together. I am grateful we are together for Eternity.
