The Best Decision I Will Ever Make

Four years ago, at this exact time, I was sitting in an endowment session in the Portland Temple, surrounded by my loving family, occasionally gazing at a handsome and valiant young man, giddily contemplating the covenants I was about to make with him. Completely filled with JOY.

I'd been home only a month from my mission when this dear friend made a confession of love to me. Although it came shockingly, he being engaged to another of my dear friends, his expression seemed to shoot straight to my heart and land in a place that was only meant for him to reach. I could hardly believe how strangely right every second of talking and being with him was. It was like coming home.

The decisions was not only the best I've made, it was one of the easiest. A valiant, talented, faithful, strong, athletic, enthusiastic, humble, fun, always learning, intelligent man, whom I trusted with all things eternal, wanted me to team up with him for eternity. Just the greatest all star around, the perfect match for me in every way...of course I'd ride with him through the thrills, jolts, bolts and detours to exaltation. If I had hand picked attributes, spiritual and physical characteristics to make up a mate for myself, it would've made him (and he even came with a few I wouldn't have picked that inspiringly end up complimenting me). Even if I hadn't been bombarded with spiritual pressure from heaven, I would have completely chosen him on my own. The undeniable heavenly promptings will forever solidify that I have great taste. :)



And so, four years ago I made promises to him, in the presence of heaven, that I would give him all that I am. That I would do my best, to love and serve the Lord, and love and serve him.

Today I sit, giddily contemplating the covenants I have made. Knowing full well that I hardly deserve such a man. So happy that I chose him, so honored that he chose me, and so grateful that I have forever to live up to the potential he believes in.

I love you forever my Sweets.
