Going to the temple

I’m a little behind in posts, so I have a few I am trying to write and post.  A lot has been going on, and I haven’t been good at writing about it.

First, Kaanas and I were finally able to go to the temple together!  For those who are not LDS, our temples are where we go to make covenants with God.  It is a very sacred place, and going is a special experience.  Because of the sacredness of what we do there you have to meet certain worthiness requirements in order to be able to go.  I have tried to go regularly, but Kaanas’s pornography addiction made it so he was not able to go to the temple.  Kaanas has now gone long enough without looking at pornography that he can attend the temple again.  On Wednesday we got a baby sitter and were able to go together for the first time in almost 2 years.  It was so wonderful.  I was so happy to finally be able to attend the temple with my husband.  We are hoping to be able to go regularly for now on, but if we can go together really depends on if we can find a babysitter that often.  Mingli seemed to like the girl we left him with, but we feel bad because we didn’t pay her (we tried to, but she said she doesn’t charge if we go to the temple and refused to take our money), so we don’t want to take advantage of her by having her spend 3 hours every week watching our son for free.  Oh well, we’ll figure it out.  Now that we are able to go together again it is going to take more than finding a baby sitter to keep us from going.
