I can't believe my two middle babies just celebrated their First Communion. Where has the time gone?! It was a wonderful celebration. Helena and Elijah knew what was happening too thanks to those many Meditations held by the religious education director. We talked about many things during those programs-forgiveness, kindness, open hearts and minds, seeing God/Spirit as a woman, compassion. I could go on. It was a very positive experience in which the children had a firm hand. I love that Fr. Tom had the children sit up on the altar steps with him for the majority of mass.
We had a wonderful and raucous lunch with my parents and brother after the service. So now I am beat. I didn't realize how worked up I was during this whole process. But as quick as a flash it's over, and now onto the rest of the busyness of May.
How was your weekend?
