Edie got the sacrament of Confirmation! Welcome to spiritual adulthood Edith Kateri! (One guess who she chose as her Confirmation saint. I had fun spelling it to the cake decorator.)
It was a beautiful ceremony and Edie looked beautiful in her dress, which also happened to be my mother-in-law’s wedding dress. It fit Edie perfectly and despite my daughters using it as a dress up gown many years ago, we only needed to make a few repairs. We hadn’t told Tony’s mom that Edie would be wearing the dress so it was a pleasant surprise for her.
We had a small gathering at our house afterwards for grandparents and Edie’s sponsor’s family. It wasn’t the big party I wanted to throw, but at this point, I was just so happy she got Confirmed, I didn’t care (that much). At least I didn’t need to spend all day Thursday cleaning up the yard and house.
Insurance concerns are still up in the air, but I expect a resolution to the nursing issue early next week. Honestly, my hopes are not high. I’m going to try to not think about it while we’re in Gettysburg this weekend. Last time we went was:
Since Fulton and Teddy are our two big military history buffs, we thougth another trip was in order. Both are excited to spend tonight (Friday the 13th) in a hotel that overlooks the National Cemetery. If we don’t see wounded Civil War ghosts walking around I think the whole trip will be a bust.
A reminder that I’ve started a ministry for Catholic special needs parents. (Our relaunched website is now a year old!) You can find us at acceptingthegift.org and join our Facebook group HERE. We’ve started online support group meetings, I’ve been leading live stream prayers and talks, and members can watch all the presenters from the 2019 conference. Join us, or spread the word to your friends who might be looking for support! And of course there’s also a monthly newsletter- sign up here.
Sorry for the short takes. I honestly don’t even know where all my time went this week. I mean, I sort of do, but I feel like I couldn’t have possibly filled all my time but yet here I am hammering out takes on a Thursday night unable to recall anything else. Maybe I’m just old.
How was your week? Write it down then link it up below. Be sure to include a link back to this post so your readers can find the rest of the Takes. I look forward to reading your posts!
