On August 3rd, Matthew went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple and took out his own endowments. He wanted it to be a quiet affair so it was just Ted and me and his grandparents. We were so grateful that all of them could join us. It was a great experience.
For a lot of years, I've sat in the Celestial Room of the temple watching parents waiting for their kids to join them there. I have shed many a tear watching those happy reunions, waiting for the day when I would have one of those with my own kids and imagining that amazing scene in the life to come. I LOVED being there with that boy.
I'm glad he's going on a mission, but being there is really what it's all about.
