Eternal Families


“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.” ~Winnie the Pooh


Not generally a Winnie the Pooh fan, but this little quote touched me today. That's how I feel about my family. Every single one of them. Which makes me so thankful for the gift of eternal families.

I love the Alberta temple. I've only been to the grounds as a kid, I'd love to go inside now as an adult!

I love all of the thoughts that you leave to inspire us all. My spirits are lifted every time I read your blog. Thank you (and Pooh Bear) for putting into words the way I too feel about my own family. It's a special feeling to have.

Amen sister! I feel the same way. That's one reason I LOVE our theme this year in Primary!
