The Christening Dress...

Yesterday was a very special day...
the dress I was baptized in was used again
for the christening of my beautiful great niece. 
Over twenty children have been baptized in this simple,
hand stitched cotton dressed that
my Grandmother Lillian (my Father's Mother)
purchased for my christening over sixty years ago. 
She was my Godmother and
my Grandfather (my Mother's Father)
was my Godfather. 
Godparents for the newest member of our family
were her Mother's sister and Father's brother.
Our Family is Truly Blessed.
