I am blessed with..
Graham, who loves and supports our family and makes me laugh daily
My two little boys, who provide all the challenges, excitement, & energy I could want
Parents and siblings who have become my best friends and whom I am grateful I'll have forever
A house, car, food, and all the basics of life (and many of the luxuries) that so many in the world go without
Technology, to answer questions big and small
Faith in God, to answer everything that the internet can't
And I could go on forever.
This weekend involved a special blessing. In my faith we believe in blessing babies within the first few months of birth. The blessing is typically given by the child's father and is usually done in our church meetings. However, because of some extenuating circumstances, we decided to bless Logan at home this Sunday. It was wonderful to be surrounded by family and watch Graham take our child and promise him wonderful things from our Heavenly Father.
As I look at this tiny infant, I wonder who he will be as an adult. I wonder what his career will be, whom he will marry, and whether he will make good choices. But as he was blessed, I could imagine for a moment the man he will grow into. And that makes me smile.
