I had started my last semester at Byu- Idaho just five days earlier, and I was back again. Back home. Back with family. It felt so nice to be in a familiar and warm place. It was a big day. My mom kept chanting, "It's your day, all you!" I smiled softly, knowing that it was her way of saying I'm so proud of you.
It was crazy getting to Draper and there was so much to prepare and get all ready and in the car before we could go. I was to be there an hour and a half before the session started, we were right on time. Barely.
It was beautiful. The experience of going through the temple was absolutely, undeniably stunning. With no real idea of what was about to take place, the temple workers were so kind and they really know how to take care of us newbies! I even had a really bad cough that drove everyone crazy, but they didn't show it. They brought me in a paper cup of water and tissues. They really do try to make you feel as comfortable and calm as possible.
I was really sick to my stomach as well and had a pounding headache but somehow, I got through everything just fine, I can only thank Heavenly Father for helping me through. I felt so protected and helped in the temple and now I have the blessing and protection that comes with endowments. I couldn't be happier, I am doing something very special to the Lord and I feel so blessed for it.
I still laugh at the fact that if you had told me a year ago that I would be wearing garments and getting ready to leave on a mission that I would probably giggle and deny it, or just stare at you like, you have finally lost your sanity, that's not possible. But you know what? All things through Christ are and will always be possible if we only have faith!
The church is true and the Temple is a beautiful blessing to us where we can find help and guidance in all things. I love this Gospel and really am way too excited to serve!
