families can be together forever

Saturday morning I got to go to the temple to watch my brother get sealed to his children.  I have only been to marriage sealings before so this was a neat experience.  Malachi and Layne adopted Andrew and Mallory officially in November and they were their foster parents before that.  I am glad to have another niece and nephew around especially since they are so close to Tucker and Penelope's age and they are the only ones who live close by.  I am happy for my brother and his family.
The temple is an amazing place.  For those of you who have never heard of a temple sealing it basically means that you get to be together forever and that includes in the next life.  So when Bob and I got married it was for all of eternity and not just till 'death do you part' or 'so long as you both shall live'.  To know more about temples go here.
I feel so blessed to have the temple in my life.  It is such a comfort to know that I get to be with my family forever.

Cute kids! It is an amazing blessing to witness a family being sealed together. I've been to my niece's and I am pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

Those two little children look like they belong to their eternal parents. Wonderful and happy times.
