Last Saturday my mom and I went shopping for a dress for me to wear to the wedding luncheon and temple clothes for when I go through the temple this weekend. And we were talking about wedding plans and all that fun stuff that we're pretty much done with at this point (I hope...not forgetting anything, right?), and I started to cry. Because my grandma should be here for all of this. And it breaks my heart a little that she won't. I told my mom that and she started to cry too, and for the first time in my life I saw my mom as a little girl.
Without her mommy.

And we both cried, sitting in Rubios eating tacos. Because we miss our grandma and mom.


But I know that we will see her again. And even though I won't see her sitting in the sealing room of the temple next to my grandpa, or in any of the million photos we take, I like to think that she'll be there.

I bet she was. when we were married the sealer talked about people that had gone before, like dave's grandpa. and we think he was there :) i'm sorry. that is a sweet post.

I bet she was there too. I think that it is such a great blessing that we get to have the help of our ancestors throughout our entire lives. It is such a blessing and it is so comforting to feel their love.

Katie, your wedding was so beautiful! I'm so happy for you!
