From Generation to Generation

I was baptized in 1981. At that time, my mom was working at a Catholic school and one of the nuns knit me a white sweater. I used to have a picture of myself wearing it on my baptism day, but unfortunately that photo album was severely water damaged following the fire.

I can live with the loss of the pictures, but I admit to being quite relieved we were able to save the sweater. We were also able to save our baptism gown, another relief! I was grateful that Logan was able to wear both as his siblings have before him.

Aidan's baptism was pre-us owning a digital camera and so far I haven't found a baptism picture, but I think I still have one somewhere. When we get to Utah I pray I can find one in the boxes of smoke damaged scrapbooks.

I love passing down special things from generation to generation. Maybe someday another generation will wear this sweater and share it's story!

Heidi, that's really neat. Our youngest, Julia was just baptized the end of June and she wore my baptismal gown. Every child baptized in it has his/her name embroidered in it with the date of their birth. Beginnning with me there have been nine including my brothers, cousins, nephew, niece and now both daughters. What a blessing to pass on that little sweater!
