Sunday was my blessing day.
That means I got to get all dressed up in this beautiful white dress.
It was made by my Great Grandmother Louise. My mother wore it on her blessing day. My sister Stella also wore it.

These pretty little booties were also my mothers.
My blessing was given to me by my father, Jonathan.
My blessing was to give me a name,
Tessa Mae Swenson.
My father also granted me blessings that I will receive throughout my life if I am obedient to Heavenly Father's teaching.
There were many things he blessed me with. One in particular that I would be a virtuous daughter of God.
I got lots and lots of kisses on my blessing day.
I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and that I am one of his special children.
He sent me to a family that loves me.
Families are a blessing.
