Ten years

December 27, 2010

Ten years ago today two little kids got married. In the LDS Temple in Portland, Oregon. The sun was shining. There was so much family love: grandparents (almost all who have passed away now), parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and siblings. It was a surreal, powerful, and perfect day. Probably the most perfect day of my entire life.

I was terrified. Jittery in my three-inch satin heels. But I knew as long as I stuck with the guy by my side, everything would be all right.

That is how it was, and that is how it has been. Whenever things get off-kilter, chaotic, frustrating, I come back to this: this union (in our faith we call it a sealing) forged in our temple, ordained by heaven.

Ten years. So many moves, so many years of schooling. Four of the spunkiest kids on God’s green Earth.

Jackson said yesterday, “Ten years and four boys. Let’s see, if you do the math, then by 2020 you’ll have eight boys! And by 2040 you’ll have sixteen boys.”

Well…we’ll see. But with the surprises that have come our way the past ten years, perhaps anything is possible.

Love you, Seth. Thanks for sticking with me.

      Thanks Gholdston. To think, it all began in YOUR CLASS! We owe everything to that small, oval-shaped table and the excellent teacher who sat at the head.

      Hope you had a nice Christmas. –T

    We’ve been thinking of you two today. Ten years! Hard to believe. Many marvelous events have happened in those ten years. We love you! Surely glad you both made that perfect decision 10 years ago.
