thankful in threes
today i am thankful for the temple. my beautiful friend liko went through the temple for the first time today and i was so happy to be there for the big event! i feel a little crazy when i think about the temple closing for 18 months soon. it's not like we can just drive to the one that is the next closest- ahh!! i guess we'll just look forward to when that super ferry starts making trips to the big island... kona temple here we come! there is no substitute in this world for the temple. i leave centered, focused, back on track, and ready to take action in my life and yet peaceful at the same time.
i am also thankful for well planned out parties- they are so fun! it must have been a ton of work, but if you are reading this mrs. jackie kontoes, it was totally worth it because that tea party was magical. i think that was one of the most fun and enjoyable baby showers i have ever been to-- we didnt have to look at nasty diapers with candy bars melted into them once (who originally thought of that tacky game? bleh.)! it was so perfect and so anna.
and lastly (and always), i am thankful for thomas, the good dad who watched the good (and very sassy) baby so i could attend these events today. you boys always manage to have fun when mama is away. :)
