The song "I love to see the temple" has been the lullaby that I will sing to my kids at night. We also sing it in the car whenever we drive past a temple. I've always loved the words and I've wanted to instill that song into my kids minds because isn't that our main goal in life to do the things we need to to make it back to our Heavenly Father in the celestial kingdom. The temple is our way back. When I left in the ambulance to go to the airport in St. George we drove out and the St. George temple is right there. As we drove past the temple and I was looking out the window at the temple the most overwhelming feeling and thought came to my mind...."Families are Forever" no matter what happens families are forever. An incredible amount of peace came to me. This was right after I had watched my little baby go into cardiac arrest. I kind of knew then that he might not make it. We got to the St. George airport and flew for about 1 hour to the Salt Lake Airport. They then put Wyatt on Life Flight and I went in a cab to Primary Children's Hospital. The cab driver drove me right past the Salt Lake Temple. I then had that same feeling and the words come to me "Families are Forever" and the peace came to me again. St. George and Salt Lake temples are my favorite temples and to see them within an hours time was amazing. I think Heavenly Father was preparing me for what was to happen.
How grateful I have been for the temple since Wyatt's passing. The peace and spirit I've felt there has been incredible. I'm feeling and learning new things each time I go. I'm so grateful that we live so close to such a beautiful temple and that I can go and get the comfort and peace I need to make it through another week without my Wyatt. I don't know what I would have done without that added peace and comfort. "Our family is forever."
