Wednesday Wisdom

I know I shared this on Facebook already, but I don't care.
It's just that good.
This is a video they shared at the Young Women Broadcast last weekend as part of General Conference.

if you don't understand this whole thing, read HERE and HERE to find out more about the temple.
I've watched this so many times and I still cry every single time. LOVE it.

Since January, my best friend and I have been going to the temple every Thursday morning. 
7:30 a.m. is the only time we could both guarantee to be available. Both being far from morning people, it's been tough. But I can promise you it's been worth it. 
The brethren and sisters who work there in the mornings have come to know us and look forward to seeing us. 
There is no better thing to hear on a cold, early morning than "Good morning Sister Allen! Welcome to the temple!"
While they've been early mornings, I've noticed such an incredible difference in my life. 
I've been happier. I've been less stressed. I've done a better job of focusing on the important things. 
There really are blessings that come from standing in holy places. 
Amy and I joke that we are racking up our "hot husband points" by going so regularly, and while it's funny, I think it's true to a point. By doing the right things now, we'll be blessed in... all sorts of capacities ;) The longer we have to wait, the better we're getting and the better our husbands are getting ;)
I can't wait for the day that I can go through the whole temple. 
Being there every week makes me real excited. 
And now, it's bedtime because I'm leaving for Ohio at 8 tomorrow morning, meaning Temple Thursday had to get moved up to 6:30... I don't remember the last time I got up that early :/ Oh well. Worth it, right?
