jak and I returned to our local temple today. I really enjoyed this. It was almost like having a date. I haven’t been to the temple in over a year and it felt good to finally be able to go back. It’s been even longer since jak and I have been there as a couple. Why haven’t I been to the temple in over a year? One word: kids. Check this out! jak picked me up at Boy’s school at 8:41 AM. We arrived at the temple just after nine and weren’t out again until nearly twelve thirty. Previous to this, Boy was in school for half-days and I needed to meet his bus at 11:30. So, for the past more than a year I have been unable to visit the temple because I needed to be there for my son. Now Boy is in school full-time so I could actually afford the time it took to go and come back, plus we were able to celebrate with a little salad and pizza. It was a wonderful experience and I’m particularly grateful that my husband, jak was there to share it with me. I made another appointment for the same time next week and a back-up appointment for eleven o’clock instead, in case jak has a bad night and can’t make it. So, now I’m firmly committed to Temple Tuesdays. It feels great to be in there doing the work again.
