Yesterday we blessed Seth in church. Ben had meetings before church, so I had to get all 5 kids dressed and ready. Needless to say I was late to church! Apparently the member of the bishopric got up to announce us and Ben had to signal that I wasn't there yet. Ben was embarrassed especially since two members of the stake presidency were there, but we did the blessing after the sacrament, and all went well. Our extended family came to show their support for Seth and I was really touched that they were there. Ben performed the blessing with the Bishop, Norm (Ben's dad), David Bean (friend), Sam Farley (friend), and Aaron Lehikoinen (home teacher) in the circle. The Spirit was really strong during the blessing. I was pretty emotional and felt so joyful and blessed to be a mommy of such wonderful children. A few noteworthy promises from the blessing: Seth was blessed that as he comes from a large family that he would not feel like one of many; that he would serve a mission for the church and bring the joy of the gospel to thousands through his example (pretty strong statement!); that he would have the strength to avoid the temptation of Satan; and that he would avoid common childhood sickness and be strong and healthy.
