Today my cousin’s baby was dedicated to the Lord, which was really neat to see.
I was especially happy because for so many years they lived very far away and I was able to be at her wedding (even though it was a 24 hour drive from here where they used to be), then at her sons birth and seeing him dedicated was just really nice that they are close here and we are able to see them more.
I think only one of the boys had a formal dedication and even today it was so neat how the baby was calm and attentive. I remember H. calming all down and cooing during the prayer!
Another family announced they were having their 6th baby and it made me think about the blessing of children! Sometimes when I am in the middle of all the housework, schoolwork and cooking along with breaking up fights it seems like i start to wonder “why?” and these little things remind me!
