This past weekend was flowing with graces in the Sammons household. On Saturday, my oldest daughter was confirmed. For the past year I have been preparing her and a group of homeschoolers for their confirmation. I was not only extremely proud of my own daughter, but also the wonderful young souls who were excited to become full members of the Church.
Then on Sunday my son received his First Communion (and it was also his birthday – what a great gift!). I still remember his excitement two years ago when one of my daughters was making her First Communion – I don’t think then he thought he could wait two whole years until he received Jesus sacramentally!
Needless to say, I was busting at the seams this weekend in thanksgiving for all the graces and gifts our Lord has bestowed upon my children. Praise be to God!
