Well life must go on. It is November 7. Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Here in Bucks County we are expecting some SNOW today. So it's hard not to think of the holidays with the weather and the date pointing out that the time is near.
On Saturday my youngest, Matthew, who is a junior, received his ring. I have to post a few photos because I was so proud. He was a cantor at the mass, is in the chorus and he had two solos. The chapel was pact and it was often difficult to get a good photo. My husband was trying to video tape while I was shooting and didn't even know my lens was on manual. (shhhh, I didn't even know I had to change that)
This is Holy Ghost Prep.
A wonderful prep school run by the Spiritan Priests. (You can click on the photo to enlarge)
Both my sons had the opportunity to study here and we have no regrets.
Here is Matt with Fr. Jeff our favorite Spirian priest and friend. He is also the president of HGP.
Funny how being on a plane, up there, 35,000 miles above the ground puts things into perspective. Up there I thought of my life and the things that stress me and worry me and how small they appear when you are consumed by fear of rapid descent and drastically plummeting at G force into the ground. I promised if God got me home safe to be more patient as a daughter, to trust more and have faith. I stood in that chapel seeing my son, the same child who at 4months old had a hole in his heart repaired, sing in front of the entire completely filled chapel and I felt. . . blessed.
(I will be attending Susan Taylor's (Black Eyed Susan) Christmas Unveiling at her store tomorrow night with my dearest friends and MCG Afficionadas! Lisa and KC. I will take tons of photos. Can't wait! So be sure to check in sometime on Friday for my post. I'm sure there will be alot to get excited about.)
This was one of the songs the boys did as people were arriving. I was able to video tape it because I had no big heads in front of me yet. The students hadn't processed inside. Hope you enjoy it. I can't listen to it without crying.
