Emily got her patriarchal blessing tonight.
That was quite the experience.
Not only were her questions answered...but my request was too. I didn't think it happened like that. I thought it was only the person who was receiving the patriarchal blessing that had their prayers answered. I guess not.
Immediately following the blessing, the patriarch looked at Emily, paused for a second, put his hand on her shoulder and said "You are a beautiful person." He wasn't talking about how she looked.
I thought getting my patriarchal blessing was special. I was right. =) Hearing my daughter's just took it to another plane. How thankful I am to my Father in Heaven for his sweet and tender mercies.
