My niece, at a bit over 1.5 years old, wore the silver Cross
I gave her for her baptism; her Mother put it on her;
blessed by Holy Water, blessed by baptism and it's waters.
I was so glad that I was able to be there.
Her Mother gave her a profound verse that will always be
with her daughter, read out loud over her, as a blessing and as a charge.
And so my work here is now almost over, for now.
Tomorrow I see my Grandmother for lunch and a visit.
Then tomorrow night, God willing, I fly home
and am deeply looking forward to being with my
beloved Husband again.
