My youngest daughter is 8. What is so important about 8? She could get baptized. Yesterday was the party. Today was the baptism. It was wonderful.
Her oldest brother performed the baptism. Grandma and Grandpa Monzingo gave talks. Kermit confirmed her. It was perfect. Well, almost. I think more family, more extended family would have made it perfect. But it was wonderful anyway. There were a significant number of ward members in attendance.
"Why are all these people here?" she asked.
"Because they love you." I said.
