|Not sure why Jonny was so interested in this end...|
|It was warm down there but certainly not hot enough to go shirtless! Silly boys!|
|Us and Grandpa Mayfield. He is so sweet! We really bonded with him and were so grateful for his generosity!|
After we went to the temple we did some hiking at Snow Canyon and then Dixie Rock. We ended up on a big rock overlooking the temple just as the sun went down and the lights came on in the city. We all sat and talked about our spouses, the things we miss, the things we love about them, favorite memories, etc. It was so peaceful and healing. The best part is...we were able to do it all with smiles on our faces. That may seem small to some...but it was huge for us.
I love that I am finding joy in each day, that Heavenly Father is healing and softening my heart and helping me to carry on. I am grateful that there is a smile on my face much more often than there are tears on my cheeks. Nine months ago I thought my only happy place was right by Trent's side. While that is truly the happiest place for me...there are other happy places that I can enjoy here on earth.
