Today I was able to email my family and it is such a blessing! I am so grateful for my family! I am also grateful for the knowledge that we can live together forever because of the temple! I know that because of the temple my family is not just a joy in this life but will be a source of joy for all eternity.

Although being away from my family while I am serving a mission is hard it gives me the opportunity to share with others how they can be more united with their families in this life and how they can live with one another forever. What an absolute blessing!
