In the spirit of my last post, tears are flowing and chills are running up and down my spine as I just heard the announcement of the new temple in Rome, Italy. There was a brief dramatic pause in Pres. Monson's voice and an audible gasp from the congregation when these words were uttered.
For some, this may not mean much, but for me and my house, this is a day of joy and jubilation - a long sought day with much faith and prayers. My heart skips a beat or two as my spirit leaps for the dear and wonderful Italian saints. Though I have no known Italian blood physically flowing through my veins, if you really know me, you'll know that Italian brotherly and spiritual DNA are a crucial and critical part of who I am.
This day is a day of elation! Thanks for indulging me... If you were here with me I'd give you a big "abbraccio" (hug). I can't help it... After all my passion comes from being Italian.
