On Sunday, Cael was blessed by his dad. It was an incredible day! We had so many wonderful family members share the day with us. I felt overwhelming gratitude to my Heavenly Father for the many gifts in my life, especially my beautiful family.
Cael's blessing was very sweet and the spirit was incredibly strong. I remember that the blessing said he was a choice spirit and that he'd be a leader among men. It also spoke about him serving a mission for the church and that he would bring other's to the church by his faith and righteousness. After the blessing followed a beautiful Testimony meeting. Wade shared his Testimony about how Cael has allowed him to appreciate the Christmas season more and that he know's he is a special spirit. Adell also shared her Testimony and impressed everyone in the meeting by talking about how grateful she was to watch her baby brother be blessed.
Cael's grandfather, Richard Gardiner, shared the most beautiful Testimony about how he had received spiritual confirmation regarding Cael and that he knew he'd be a leader and a positive influence on those around him. It was just beautiful!
I shared my Testimony also, mostly just to express my immense gratitude.
Cael has been so wonderful! We just love having him in the family. He is such a sweet little baby and I feel like I could easily just sit and snuggle with him all day - just soaking up his sweet little spirit. There's nothing quite like having a newborn in your home.
I wish I had better words to adequately describe just how much I love my little family. My sweet girls bring me so much happiness and joy, my little boy heals my heart, and my dear husband completes me. How is it I'm so blessed with so much love? I have my Heavenly Father to thank for all of it. As we celebrated on Sunday, I was struck with the truthfulness of the Gospel and the plan of Eternal Families. How amazing to be able to be a part of it.
I'm just so grateful!
