Jess' Blessing

      His little white blessing outfit was the same one his father was blessed in 35 years ago. My sister-in-law, Jen, crocheted his booties using my Grandma Lovett's pattern. Marshall wore the same outfit for his blessing.  Grandma Brown  made a white blanket that we used for both boys. Our little family is stitched tight!
     Right now, Jess looks most like my mom's family. I see her mother, Ruby,  and father, Benny, in his face the most. I love feeling that connection to my grandparents since both have passed away and I am homesick for West Virginia.
