Our eternal family

My best friend Macie's little baby Johnny passed away on Saturday. When I heard the news my heart sank and tears rushed to my eyes. This tiny little boy was just too perfect for this world, his work on earth was finished and our loving Heavenly Father needed him back.

I am so grateful for the knowledge I have of the Plan of Salvation. So grateful for the covenants I have made in the temple allowing me to live with my family not just here on this earth for however long we may be here, but for eternity. I know these things to be true, I know that we were all placed here on this earth by our Heavenly Father to learn and to grow. I love my husband and our darling daughter more than meager words can express and I know we'll be together forever. This brings me so much joy!

Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry to hear about Macie! I hope her family finds comfort in the fact that they will see him again. Send her my sympathies if you get a chance.

So sorry for Macie. I don't know if I ever really met her but I remember you telling me of her often.
And yes, so glad for eternal families!
