Once upon a time in a desert suburb there was a temple building proposed.
The families surrounding the area were excited. They took pictures where it was to be built:
(More about that back in part 1.)
The families helped build the bedrock of the foundation with their testimonies and love written on rocks.
More about that back in part 2.)
The youth participated in a temple walk to be even more aware of how exciting the whole deal was:
(More on that back here.)
The families in the area watched and waited as it rose up from the ground.
Then one day (completely unrelated to the temple building going on) one mother went to school to pick up her daughter for a lunch date (because she liked to do that from time to time).
As she was checking her daughter out from school there happened to be a whole slew of other moms grabbing their kids. They asked her if she was going to watch Angel Moroni being put up.
She responded that now she was 🙂
So she and her daughter went on a special date to watch that guy be hoisted up there to the top.
They stood around with the hoards of other people who came to watch, in awe of how cool it was to see such things… …(and even ran into the mother’s dear college friend who she hadn’t seen in ages:)
And although that mother was sad she only had her iPhone to capture the day with, it was sure the date of a lifetime for her and her girl.
…one they will remember each time they drive past that beautiful building.
And maybe even on that girl’s wedding day some day in the future…
You never know 🙂
