Something Special Just Happened.....


My baby, Sydney Loren Clare, turned 8 last week. Following a tradition started by my parents, my children receive their own nice set of Scriptures when they are baptized. Syd is going to be baptized on August 25th, because her uncle is baptizing her and they won't be able to make it to Missouri until that date. So I havent ordered her Scriptures yet.

She has been using the Scriptures I received when I was 8 years old. They are beat up but she loves them. Today just a few minutes ago, she asked me if I would "pass them down" to her. She said she wanted to use them, then when her baby turned 8 she would pass them down to them! Well, I'll be. LOL. I was thrilled! We carefully marked out my 8 year old handwriting that said my name and phone number and we wrote her name and phone number in them. I told her that I had carefully marked the Scriptures that were important to me and also, that I had used those Scriptures for seminary. She said she would mark the Scriptures that were important to her, and one day my grandkids would get to use the Scriptures ! I just felt so wonderful. So you see, something special just happened to me...... a tradition was started between me and my youngest child. I feel pretty great right now :) What special things have happened to you today??? :) Happy parenting! Love, JL~
