I think I've figured out why I love Nauvoo. . . and to those of you who just like to go on vacations to relax, that's great, but I love going to historical places. Which is probably why I love Europe, and why Israel was my favorite trip ever! But, Nauvoo brings you back. It isn't a commercial city, it is soaked in history, the history that I am so grateful for. Just being there and visiting reminds me how grateful I should be for everyone who worked so hard to bring me everything that I have. I have religious freedom, and I have the Book of Mormon, and temples, and they sacrificed their lives to bring that to pass. Yet, in this world it is so easy to forget, but when you're in Nauvoo, you can't forget that. It reminds you how much you should be grateful for.
