"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart-- that's TRUE STRENGHTH"
(Thank you RICHELLE ANDERSON for this awesome quote, which I stole!)
Saturday morning...I woke up at 2:30a.m., met the youth and leaders in my ward at our church at 3:00a.m., drove to the Draper Temple, took some pictures, and started our journey to the Salt Lake Temple at 3:30a.m.
We began preparing to do this in April. We walked 3 times a week together, and we were all very excited to do it. Why did we do this? To teach our youth that getting to the temple is their #1 goal in life, to remember that the temple means we can be with our families forever, and to teach them that we/they CAN do hard things...and this WAS hard!
A picture at the Draper Temple to start...
We finally made it...10 hours, 22 miles later...extremely sore hips, legs, feet, well...pretty much everything hurt. But look who was there waiting for me. My family...who I get to be with forever!
