That Joy Joy Joy Deep Down
My new years word is thankfulness. I began this year trying to pay attention to my blessings. I am constantly shocked at all I take for granted! So many blessings in a single day! How did I not notice? This weekend again provided opportunities to realize my blessings. The comforter that matches my bedroom was 75% off at Kohls, finally a good hair day, the refs raising my son's arms for victory 11 different times ... yes! The Glory Bees are getting more frequent as my eyes are opening. But that joy deep down in my heart happened today, when my husband and I walked into Mass as the procession was just about to begin. Our 3 youngest boys have religious instruction before Mass so they are always there in church before us. When we walked in, we did not see the boys waiting in the back of the church for us but in altar robes carrying the crucifix and the candles and serving at mass. The children that I bore, embracing the faith that I love, serving. Without being told, and because they wanted to. A most beautiful beautiful sight! Beats a sale or a win any day.
