Hey y’all! So today was my baby bro’s 14th birthday! I had school so he went golfing with my dad and then went to a trampoline place called The Warehouse with Lauren’s brother Logan. I can’t believe he’s so old now! Happy Birthday dude, you’re my favorite sibling 😉 You always know how to make me smile when I really don’t want to. Thanks for trying to hug me over and over again when I only push you away, and for the great cakes. I love you.
School wasn’t too bad, I’m super exhausted but I thought I’d write this post. Our English teacher seems legit, he’s hilarious. After school we had some homework to finish from over the summer so we got fries and nuggets from McDonalds to cope XD
But just a little bit ago, my dad gave us a father’s blessing to help with the school year and stuff. My dad talked about helping me do good in school, not getting overwhelmed, coming closer to my Heavenly Father, being an example for my brother, using my talents to help others, and that we’ll be able to find some answers medical wise and I’ll be better able to deal with the pain, and to know how much my parents love me.
We used to get these every year before school but we haven’t done it in awhile, so this time I started tearing up, and I had to pinch myself so I wouldn’t cry.
I’m just really glad that I’m able to have these kinds of blessings that I know help me. And I’m especially grateful that my father is worthy to hold the priesthood so we can have it in our house at any time.
A lot of times when things get really bad, I need a priesthood blessing so my dad and other family members are able to help.
My dad had stage 4 hodgkins lymphoma that came back 3 times when I was younger, he had already had a bone marrow transplant (Or 2 I can’t quite remember) and needed another one. That day he got a priesthood blessing, and didn’t need one anymore. He’s been in remission for 11 years now.
I’m not saying priesthood blessings are magic- they’re not. But it comes really close.
I love you all (Happy Birthday Spencer!) – Aspen AKA The Author
