A mother's blessing to her daughter
Rosie girl - Today you will be given an official name and blessing in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. All night while you and I spent quality nursing time together, I have been thinking about the things that I as your mother would bless with and things I wish for you.
I pray you will be patient. When things in your life aren't going exactly how or happening when you want them to. I would bless you with the ability to know the lords plan for you is truly the greater plan.
I'd bless you with an undeniable faith in the lord Jesus Christ and the gospel and gratitude for the atonement. Faith in the happy times and especially in the dark times. When things in your life are hard, or you are sad, or scared, feeling alone or ashamed. Know that the Lord died for us and he atoned for you and you alone. If you were the only person alive he would have endured it all just for you.
I would bless you with unshakeable confidence in your self worth and the ability to see how special you are in the Lord's and our eyes. You are such an incredible little girl, such a strong determined spirit. When girls are mean or a boy breaks your heart, I pray you never question your self worth. You are SO loved, and you are special and valuable to so many.
A grateful heart, know how blessed you are, the family are surrounded and supported by, the gospel you will be raised in, an able body after all you endured to get her. Your circumstances couldn't be better and know that with a grateful heart you will have no time to compare your blessings to others.
The ability to step outside of yourself and view things from someone else's view and feel for them, to be empathetic and to have the desire to serve others.
I'd bless you with optimism and a friendly demeanor. So people are drawn to you and you are able to share your light with people in a natural and authentic way. And the ability to be a true friend to many by being friendly and loving.
These are just a few of the things I would bless you with. Things I will pray you will learn through out your life. Rosie girl you are such a blessing to our family, we all love you so much. Happy blessing day to you!
