First Holy Communion, Wedding and Prom

God is good.  And when the blessings rain down on us... it feels like a flood sometimes.  That's how today was.  Busy, busy, busy... but I wouldn't have missed a minute of it for the world

We started out the day with my nephew/Godchild's First Holy Communion.  What a privilege and a delight to sit with him and the rest of the family at mass to celebrate this milestone in his life.  We (Leroy and I) had active parts to play including being a part of the procession and recession during the mass... A beautiful mass.

From there we headed to the wedding of a family friend... where we got to spend time with other dear friends as well.

We left the wedding for a few minutes to take photographs of some of the Prom guests at Del Rio Country Club.  This is always one of my favorite things.  It has been a tradition to meet at someone's home (parents included) to take pictures before the kids leave for the prom.  So much fun.  It's great to see all of the kids dressed up and to meet new parents and visit with old friends.    How can it be that I have enjoyed my kids' proms more than I did my own?  But I certainly do.  This day was bittersweet as it was the beginning of the goodbye to this year's senior class.  I will miss them terribly.
