Blessing Day


This past Sunday was a very special day. It was Madeline's blessing day. Brett blessed Madeline in the same ward building he was blessed in by his father and Madeline wore my blessing gown. Madeline's dad, uncles, and grandfathers gathered in a circle cradling her in their arms. Brett gave her a name and a lovely blessing as directed by the spirit. He did an incredible job and Madeline was perfectly content. During the blessing her eyes wandered around the circle of men and she smiled at each of them.

During the rest of the Sacrament meeting Brett and I sat together adoring our daughter and whispering to one another how much we loved each other and our sweet baby girl.

Afterwords, we invited family and friends to our home for a luncheon and visit. It was wonderful to see so many people who love Madeline gather together for her special day.

It was a perfect day.
