Sometimes when you're the most busy and you feel like you don't have a minute to do even the most necessary things, it's good to just leave all the lists behind and be quiet.
This morning, this sweet girl wanted to go to the Dallas Temple just to look at it and walk around. She had never been there before today.
Casey is getting baptized on the 8th and she has more excitement and enthusiasm about the church than anyone I have ever met. One of the things on her "must do" list before getting baptized was to visit the Dallas Temple.
I'm not sure who loved it more, Casey or me, but it was a great break in my week. The lists were still there when we got home, but they seemed a little less overwhelming than they did at 8:00 this morning.
I love this amazing girl and I love the Temple. Together they were equally glowy and beautiful on a gorgeous fall morning. I'm so grateful Casey asked me to take her to the Temple. I know there was nothing on my list today that I could have accomplished that would have brought greater satisfaction than those two hours I spent with her.
