Well today was a pretty great day.
I'll back up... the last little while Shawn has been debating on getting his patriarchal blessing. Well two weeks ago he went to the Bishop for his interview. The Bishop and him decided that he is ready.
Well we called the Patriarch and he decided that today was the day. Well we talked a lot about what it is. Then today in sacrament I found some lessons on what a patriarchal blessing is. He read those. He fasted. He prayed.
He was scared to death.
I am not sure why.
Well I got my blessing when I was 18.
Steve got his when he was 24 (and we had Shawn & Alyssa).
It was pretty cool to be at both of ours.
To be at your little boys (ok so he is not so little anymore) patriarchal blessing was one of the most amazing things. He had some really great things said in his. Some really great promises. I have always realized what a great boy I have but after hearing his blessing...
it just confirms it.
Well I know this isn't really important to everyone reading this but I didn't want to forget how I felt today.
Shawn you make your Mom & Dad proud.
