Priesthood Blessings & Family Events

I have received several priesthood blessings throughout my life and now I was excited and nervious to give Maggie her first priesthood blessing. When I was born I received a baby blessing, which ushered me into the world. My blessing was performed by my Father, not to be confused with a baby christening, LDS baby blessings are not a baptism, their main purpose is pronounce a name and blessing to the child, and to re-affirm our faith and commitment to the Lord. Our families drove in from California, Washington and Utah. I love these kind of family affairs. It is nice to belong to a family who supports you. I was extremely nervious about giving the blessing and about Maggie crying and screaming during her blessing... she has a good set of lungs and her little tummy has been hurting lately, but she was completely calm thoughout the blessing, wheww! Maggie was blessed in the same dress Sara was blessed in (Made by her Mother) and Sara's Mom embrodered Sara and Maggie's name into the slip of the dress. It was beautiful.
