Munchkin and I had a good day.
Lit candles, prayers, books, Mary Poppins, dinner,
Bridegroom Matins (plus prayers by icons with candles!)
at night... and then a discussion of
Samson then St Peter and St Paul along with Judas
and the difference between despair and repentance
and all about God's love.
Also discussion of solipsism (really, and not before bed!)
that began with 'I feel like everything is a dream' ... !
and discussion of the Mets, world events (from 9/11 to Syria,
watch this incredible and Christian response), to +Patrick,
to Cleo, miso soup with seaweed, chocolate cake,
baptism anniversaries, and when Mr Husband asked the
Munchkin if "Aunt Elizabeth was meeting your minimum spec"
and then explained what that meant,
he used the word "awesome" which was really cute.
We saw a dear nearby friend at church
and when I stayed talking with her,
Mr Husband told me later that he told the Munchkin that
"women like to talk a lot"!!! so funny.
I can see the Munckin growing up;
he read some of the morning prayers himself;
when we praying with candles and icons just today
(I had told him it was coming, that he would not always need me),
he prayed for others himself instead of having me do so
after listing who he wanted prayers for.
He's growing up.
I pray that he continues to grow well and be rooted in
Christ and His Church...
And tomorrow, is the second day of Holy Week,
may God protect us!
