Often, as a mom, you spend so much time fixing crisis and solving problems that you don't really get the biggest payoff day to day. It is easy to get overwhelmed and feel forgotten. But moments like this make all of the headaches and heartaches worth it. I can't imagine a bigger blessing than being a mom.

This past Sunday we had the opportunity to attend the one of the dedicatory sessions for the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. We attended the 3:00 pm session (thanks Mom and Dad for watching the kids so we could both go). It was fabulous, the speakers were great and the spirit there was incredible. Probably, the best part (for me) was that our oldest son, Bryce, was able to attend the session with us. It was wonderful to have him there. It was a little bit long for his attention span, but he did hear a lot of stories that he has shared with his siblings since then. The highlight of the day was when we were all able to participate in the Hosannah shout and then we sang "The Spirit of God" and our wonderful son sang his little heart out (thank you primary leaders who helped him learn the song a couple of years ago). He belted it out with all the umph his little heart could muster and it put me in tears.
