Oh Happy Day!

What a special day it has been! My heart is so full it hurts!
My 8 was baptized today. I am having a really hard time that I am old enough to have a child be baptized. This day has been great! We have really felt the spirit.
I have also cried-alot! What do you expect, I am a big boob anyway-just mix in a emotional day-and you for sure have got some tears that are going to come!
I cried when she got teary eyed as she read the card from me and her dad. I cried when I heard her giggle with excitement. I cried when I saw her all in white. I cried when I held her wrapped in a towell with her teath chattering! I cried when I heard my husbands sweet voice as he confirmed her a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. and when he gave her the Holy Ghost. I cried as she grinned while she shook all the hands of the men that stood inthe circle. I cried when I read the note that her sister wrote telling her she was proud of her and she loved her.
Today has been one of those "Proud Mom Moments" The kind where you know that you are doing something right. How grateful I am to Heavenly Father for loving me so much and blessing me with such a sweet memory!
So-I sit here peacefully as my children play outside without fighting.
Today is defniately a good day!

Now I love you even more! Being a "Mormon Mommy" is like no other thing in the world. If only I would have known how much work it would be...I never would have converted. LOL I'm kidding of course. Congratulations!
