So she can read it someday.
We got to drive to Visalia today for Mara's blessing.
She belongs to my niece Carly, her husband Enoch, and their 5 children.
Isn't Mara Ruth a little doll baby!
The blessing Enoch gave sweet little Mara Ruth was wonderful!
My favorite part went like this:
"I bless her with patience and understanding for the mistakes and foibles of her parents."
Proof what a good, and humble, father, this baby and her 5 siblings have.
We got to go into Primary after the blessing and listen to Hosanna's talk.
She told about how she said a prayer so her Mom would have Mara soon, and she did!
I wanted to get a picture of her family....you know, Carly and Enoch and the 6 kids....
but my camera has been fading away lately. But I did find this one taken at Family Camp last week:
Of all their kids, I think Mara looks most like Carly as a newborn.
Since Peggy still has her hospital bracelet on in the picture below,
I'm thinking Carly must have been about 1 or 2 days old, at most.
That's happy McKay (6 mo) right by Grandma.
This picture makes me miss my Mom all the more!
