so it has been a busy, productive, and wonderful day today, albeit lacking in one thing: I have not seen my beautiful Annie in 9 days. I love her so, she is the light of my life. how so you may ask? I finally went to the Temple today, over ten years since I last went. That says something about the power and influence this woman has in my life. She has transformed me into more of the son of God I should be.
The Temple was a wonderful experience. It has been long since I last experienced a good dose of peace, of calm, of a break from the evils of the world, from the tumultous driving to and fro, the haranguing, the constant abbrasiveness that is modern life.
I also registered for my classes this summer, which opened up a new avenue for our planning for the wedding in August that I was not expecting, but welcomed heartily. I’ll be taking two classes at Simmons, getting closer to that Library Science degree, and making it easier to move to New York in August when we are married. Also, with FAFSA having their fiscal year begin with summer classes, means I can get financial aid for one of those classes while Brown pays for the other. That is a good thing.
And while I did not get to see my Annie, nor get to see her as often as I would like (daily), I did get to talk to her on the phone, an experience I enjoy.
Finally, I want to say that I love Annie.
