Blessing

Michael blessed Baby Zoe this past Sunday. She wore the beautiful dress that I wore when blessed and sealed to my parents. My whole life I've loved to hear my mother tell about when the temple ladies brought me down to the sealing room in my long lacy dress, and how I looked like a little angel floating down the hall of the Salt Lake Temple. To see my own sweet babe, in that same dress and bonnet, clasped in her Daddy's arms brought tears to my eyes. My mom helped me dress her, just as she once dressed me. Michael gave her the most lovely blessing, and with my Zoe surrounded by good, loving Priesthood men, my own father and Michael's among them, I thought my heart would overflow with happiness. Truly we are the most blessed of all families!
