I am grateful for a day that happened 9 months ago.

We've been married for 9 months?! That is so crazy!!! In some ways it seems like we've been together forever and yet it still seems like we got married yesterday.
I love thinking about our wedding day. It was a very bright, sunny February morning when we were married at the LDS Sacramento Temple. I remember sitting in the temple with Jonathan before we were married. It was so calming just to sit there by ourselves. Then we were escorted to the sealing room. It was overwhelming to see all of our family and friends there to share this very special day with us. After the ceremony concluded, we were told to kiss and my dad groaned so loud! I love my dad. In the sealing room, there are two large mirrors hanging on opposite walls. As we stood inbetween them, we saw eachother standing. The interesting part is that I saw hundreds of reflections of Jonathan and only one of me and he saw the opposite. We were told that it is symbolic of who we need to focus on. Jonathan needs to focus on me and I need to focus on Jonathan. After the ceremony was over, it didn't feel like we really needed to do anything else. The most imporant part of the day was finished and the rest was just icing on the cake.
The LDS marriage ceremony that happens in the temple is different from your normal marriage ceremony. The main difference is that we are married for time and all eternity. There's no til death do us part. This means that I get to be with Jonathan for our life here on earth and after we die. It such an amazing blessing to know that whatever happens to us in this life, we can be together forever.
