Benson's Blessing

 

This past Sunday we had the opportunity to bless our little Benson. It was a really special day as we presented our baby to the Lord with a name, and gave Benson his first Priesthood blessing. How extremely grateful I am for my husband who holds the Priesthood and has been able to give a baby blessing to each one of our boys. I am grateful to have supportive friends. I am also grateful to have supportive families and an example of love that runs deep through out each relationship.

Blessing Benson on Sunday made me reflect on his sweet, short life. As I reflect on his life I can't help but get a little weepy because of the perfect spirit and joy he has already brought into my life and our home. I sure love my family and I sure love you sweet Benson.

Congratulations on Benson's blessing - I know how amazing that is - I hope with all my heart that I get to see my someday grandchildren's blessings.

Meanwhile, I have to comment on this photo! You are the picture of the emotions you described: that amazing emotion of holding your new babe and feeling that overwhelming love pouring through every part of you. Daxton has his usual "Ain't life grand" expression - always happy and joyful. Tayte is perfectly comfortable in Dad's arms, not to concerned about all the to-do, while little Benson is looking to Tayte like, "Help! I know something's happening, but I'm not sure what it is. How come Tayte's so calm????" And then there's Brandon, grinning at the camera saying, "Yep! This is my family. This is my life. And I love every wild, crazy, sweet moment of it!"

May 2015 bring blessings to all of you - love you!
