Zach's Blessing Day

This past Sunday, we had Zach's blessing in church. Here's the handsome little guy all ready for his special day.

Matt gave him a wonderful blessing. He blessed him that he would be strong and healthy, and that he would be able to do the things he wanted to do in life. He was blessed that his body would function properly. He was blessed to have a strong mind, and to be intelligent, and to make good decisions in his life. He was blessed with a desire to stay close to the gospel, and to have a desire to serve a mission when the time came, and to spread the gospel throughout the world. He was blessed to find a spouse that was good for him, and that would treat him well, and to marry in the temple. He was told that his family and the Lord loved him. He was counseled to stay close to the gospel and to study the scriptures, and by doing so, he would be able to overcome the challenges in his life.

It was a special day, and I was reminded of how blessed I am. I really do have everything I ever wanted. (Except a good night's sleep!) But really, I am very blessed, and I am thankful to my Heavenly Father for giving me all that I have.

Zach even waited til after the blessing was over to spit up all over Matt's suit. :) Emmy, on the other hand, spit up all over Matt's suit right before her blessing.
