Temple Lights

What a wonderful time of year! I can't help but get choked up as I think about the way I felt when we looked at the temple lights. I loved seeing the marvel consume Cole as he walked around pointing at everything. It is such a blessing to have such a sweet boy who I know came from Heaven and was sent to Cody and I. We didn't get the chance to go to the lights last year because...well...last Christmas was just a huge struggle for us and my mental health. I wish I could explain the happiness I feel about still being on this Earth and getting to spend everyday with Cole. Last year I wanted to take my own life and also hurt those that I love most. I know faith, prayers and lots of love from our Heavenly Father kept me alive and got me through such a dark time in my life. I hope everyone has felt of the wonderful Christmas Spirit in their lives and will give an extra tight hug to those they love most! Merry Christmas!
