Capturing life's most precious moments

Just a little serious

On Tuesday I got to go with my sister and her husband to the temple for their sealing. They had a baby girl pass away last month, and asked me to stand proxy for her in the temple. I was so excited and honored, and it was the most amazing feeling in the world to be there. There wasn't a dry eye in the room that day, as everyone could feel sweeit little Capri's spirit there rejoicing along with us. I hope I never know what it feels like to lose a child, but if I do, I hope to be able to be as strong as Kelley has been. Her faith in the atonement and the blessings of the temple are incredible considering what she has gone through, and I am just so proud to be her big sister. I'm grateful for the blessings of the temple in my life, and that I know I will be with my family forever.

Kelley~
You've gone through a lot over the last couple of years, and I just want you to know that I am so proud of how you've handled everything. You are such a wonderful daughter of God and I know He is proud of you too.

What a great family support your family seems to have. That is so important when sad things happen. That is such beautiful experience for you to share with your sister. I hope you are all finding peace and comfort. You are all in my prayers.

Im sure that was one of the most spirtual experiences you have ever had. What a good support you are to your sister. So sad about the baby but wonderful that they will be back together one day.

Congrats on the baby boy. That's exciting.
