I just wrote a long post, but then I hit delete. Do you ever have so much to write, but it doesn't come out right? That was me.
Today our old Priest came to see Brady. He is one of the neatest people I know. He is so funny, kind, and has more wisdom than anyone I know. Words do not do this man justice. Over the years I have had a few qualms about the Catholic church. Each time he explains something to me that I might question or disagree with, I feel better. He isn't pushy or even 'preachy.' I can't explain it, but I can not say enough good things about him.
It has been a week since my friend Elli lost her baby girl. Each time I look at Brady I feel so much sadness for her and another mother I know who recently lost her baby boy. I hear Brady make little sounds, look at me, kick his chubby legs, smile, or just smell him, and my heart feels so much sadness for people who have lost their babies. It's not fair. I don't understand it at all.......
Tomorrow is Brady's baptism. This will be a happy celebration that I look forward too. Hopefully the kids will behave. You never know what you are going to get out of them.
I will leave you with this picture of Olivia from today...you can gather that I influence her a bit!
