January and February, 2014
I thought that retirement was supposed to be relaxing! Jim and I began the process in January to be able to go on a mission. We had to complete a huge application and for a while we were in doctors' and dentists' offices to complete the required exams almost weekly. We met with an attorney and set our affairs in order.
I worked hard to gather some family names together so that we would be able to go to the Temple to be sealed to my parents for eternity. I was very close to my parents and had to wait a year after Mom passed away to be able to complete the Temple work. It was a privilege to go to the Temple and feel the power of the sealing ordinances for our family. I believe we will be together for eternity. My nieces were able to sense her presence as we completed the work. I love my family very much and cannot imagine eternity without them!
