Sunday, August 5th, Scarlett was blessed at church.
I can already tell from the sweet spirit she brings to our family that she will be a peacemaker.
Brady gave a beautiful blessing and made me tear up thinking about all the wonderful things the future holds for Scarlett.
These are a few of the wonderful things she was blessed with:
To value education
To bring happiness to others
To have a testimony come easily to her
To be a calming influence to those around her
To have a good relationship with her Mother and look up to her
To be able to get through hard times by turning to Heavenly Father
I snapped a few pictures of her vintage dress that I purchased from Etsy. I'm in love with it and will hang it on her wall. My hope is that one day her own daughter will get to wear it.
It was a very special day. Brady also bore his testimony and spoke about how scary this world is but how our children will be okay with support from a strong family and a good relationship with Heavenly Father. He also said some really nice things about me and made me tear up. Despite the fact that I'm still soft around the middle, have a million pounds to loose, and have just started that lovely stage of post pregnancy where all my hair is falling out and I feel that I surely must be going bald, his words made me feel happy in my own skin just being me. It was a good reminder of the things that are truly important to me in this life. It was very sweet to hear him tell everyone in the room that he thinks I'm the best mom and that he loves to see me holding our children. I want to be the best Mother for my kids, but it means the world to me for my husband to think that I'm doing a good job. Especially because he knows how many times I complain about silly things that come along with being a mother like how much my back aches (motherly duties combined with being a dental hygienist = me non stop asking for back massages), how tired I am, how I never get time to myself, and he even knows exactly how many times I have to hand the kids over to him so I can take a minute to myself, take a deep breath, and re-gather my patience. Even though he knows all that, he still thinks I'm doing a good job and he still loves that I'm the mother of his children. It makes me so happy because I still feel so blessed that he is the father of my children and my husband.
Happy blessing day Scarlett Emma! You are so very loved!
