September is flying!

Wow, I can't believe how fast this is going by! I was able to receive my Patricarchal Blessing on September 6 which was fast and testimony Sunday and also my favorite Sunday of the month. I can always count on others to draw from their testimonies and add to my own. It was a great blessing and I fell in love with our Patriarch. He and his wife are so sweet but I think that's a requirement to become a Patriarch; you have to be the sweetest person in the world. Jen and Auntie went with me and we all cried. I opened my eyes at one point because they were burning so badly I couldn't hold them shut any longer and the entire room was glowing a magnificent glow! It was awesome.

I go next Friday to receive my endowments and I'm quite excited for that. My family will be there and we have an opportunity to do other work as well. It's going to be a great day.

Saturday (Sept 26), our baby girl turns one. I cannot believe how this year has flown by with her. She is such a blessing to me and I am so thankful I have the opportunity to be her aunt and to know and love her. She is just perfect and I couldn't ask for things to be any better.

That is so awesome. I am so proud of you (as I know your Heavenly Father is) for all the hard work you've put into progressing in the gospel plan and receiving all the blessings there for you. I'm glad your patriarchal blessing was incredible - read it often so you'll always remember how powerful His love is for you. What time are you doing it this Friday- my hubby will be working that night- may even wind up officiating your session. Wish I could come too, or still worked there. Loved doing initiatory for own endowments. Best wishes.
