Wow

3 little letters but that just about sums it up. This weekend was wonderful. It was one of the most spiritual things that I've had the pleasure of being involved with. Hubby was simply shining with a light from within and frankly he still is. It brought back all the memories of my own special day.

There were so many people (90 to be exact) that came to support him and welcome him to the ward. We had to have the service part of it in the chapel instead of the font room. The party afterwards was great and had a great turnout as well. I didn't stop to count how many people but there were a lot. Hubby was truly touched by the outpouring of support. He was just floored that so many people cared. My friends from Utah have been to my ward several times but they always make a point to mention what a wonderful ward we have. I couldn't agree more.

I wish that I could put into words how special this weekend was. It was all I ever hoped for and more. Now on to the more difficult part of enduring to the end but I know that it will be much easier now that I have a partner to help me through. Now with hopeful optimism, I look forward to a year from now and the temple.

Thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement.

P.S. I left my camera at my friends house so you'll have to wait for pictures. I'll hurry :o)
