Special Day for The Burgess Family.
Lina's blessing day finally arrived! Courtesy of Armando's mom's seamstress skills, she was dressed in a gorgeous little white dress that mirrored my wedding dress almost exactly. With a lot of family members and close friends to join us, we enjoyed a brief moment set aside just for Lina. As the circle of worthy priesthood holders encircled her, Clint gave her a perfect blessing. The Spirit was present.
Our luncheon turned out to be quite a hectic get together. I don't think we realized how big our family has gotten. We counted....we managed 50 people in our house today! Maximum capacity for our house is probably closer to half of that.
It was a special day in which gratitude filled our hearts for so many blessings...a perfect daughter, an eternal family, friends and family who love and support us, and the gospel.
What else could we ask for?
