My Haven


I can't believe this is our last weekend before school.  So so sad.
I am not ready to send the Little Nies off...not ready one bit.
I am worried about them as they start new schools 
because they don't know anyone, 
and I am worried I wont be both physically and emotionally ready
to help them with this new change when sometimes
 I am worried about myself not being physically and emotionally ready either!
 I am going to be homeschooling Lottie this year, 
and both of us are excited, and I am up for this little challenge 
I mean, it's kindergarten, I can at least do that!  
Today Mr. Nielson and I drove to Albuquerque, (which is about 1 1/2 hour away),
and we dragged the Little Nies around to the mall,
 Target, Costco, and other places for school and house supplies. 
It took alllllll day and honestly, I am still not sure how we packed all 
the stuff in our car.  It was a miracle. 
My favorite part of the trip was visiting the Mormon Temple in Albuquerque.  
Immediately when I saw this majestic building which overlooks the city, 
 my heart rejoiced and I cried a few tears. 
 I  felt comfort, peace and
calm which helped me know that our family was going to be just fine.  
This epic move will be rewarding for us in so many ways,
we will learn to stretch in ways that will bless our lives beyond comprehension.
Temples for me are havens and watchtowers.
They shelter us from storms, enlighten us, empower us, and 
teach us.  There are temples worldwide, and although each temple
is unique on the outside, they are all alike on the inside.
I really love that.
