Lesson Learned.

Kameron and I got to go to the temple on January 10. When we walked inside, the temple worker asked us if we wanted to do sealings. We decided we would and I am so glad that he asked us because I learned a huge lesson that day...

The night before I had a dream that Kameron and I were in the Celestial Room. We were just sitting there for awhile when all of a sudden, Kason was there with us. He said, "It's okay Mommy, you'll be fine. I get to see Jesus now. I love you." And then he was gone.

Needless to say, it freaked me out!! The whole time we were in the temple I was so paranoid that something had happened to Kason. As soon as we were done with our sealings and we were spending some time in the Celestial Room I told Kameron about my dream. He assured me that Kason was fine but, told me we could leave so we could call and check up on him.

The moment we stepped outside of the temple we called and sure enough, he was fine. We talked to him for a bit on the phone & I felt a huge relief knowing that he was okay.

I was questioning why I had had this experience. And I realized that maybe I haven't been very grateful for my eternal family, perhaps I've taken it for granted. I don't think I really understood the amazing blessing that having an eternal family is.
As we were in the Sealing Room, sealing family's together - I invisioned them, sitting across the room, watching their family become eternal and smiling as they turn to their spouse and their children and embracing each other in a family hug. These families that we sealed together have waited for years to have the blessing that I live with everyday. Brother Pew said something that brought tears to my eyes and sent chills down my spine ... he said that the families that we sealed together that day will rush to us when we get to heaven and thank us, over and over again for giving them the blessing of an eternal family.

I learned that day that I couldn't live without my two boys. They mean the world to me. And I need to be grateful everyday that we are blessed to be an eternal family because if something were to happen, I wouldn't have to lose them. I would know that we are a forever family, and for that I am eternally grateful.

What an incredible experience for you to have--thank you for sharing that with us! I love how every time we go to the temple, it's an opportunity to have new insights and revelation. Glad you were able to recognize the dream for what it was--a wonderful reminder. :)
