I'm writing this post-Super Bowl, so I'm going to bite my tongue about the game.
I knew it would be a busy day, so I was trying to be versatile with my outfit choice...
Grandma said the birdcage didn't go with the outfit. I countered by saying the Niners t-shirt didn't go with the outfit. Padre laughed when I told him that after mass (Bonus: He complemented my veil. Yay. Totally wearing this again!)
I can't tell you how happy I was to be at mass today, and not just because of all the red and gold ;)
Actually, I arrived a whole hour-and-a-half early just for the opportunity to sit in the chapel, alternating between prayer, reading and reflection. Between the book I'm reading, last night's conversation with a good friend and then today's readings...boy, howdy! I don't think I've ever wanted to be sitting next to my friend more than I did today at mass. I wanted to drive over to the cafe afterward for tea and discuss the homily, how it related to a recent discussion.
Even now, I'm filled with all these things I wanted to say. I feel like I'm bubbling over!
...my dear friend.
If you do read this, know that I missed you at mass today (you would have enjoyed the guest priest) and that if I do ever get angry, it comes from love.
...or frustration over the Niners' loss.
