Momma Said There’d Be Days Like These

I can only wish for more days like these:

This past weekend my oldest daughter made her Confirmation in the Catholic church. I have to admit I had this strange feeling inside of me as I watched her during the ceremony. It took me awhile to figure out what that feeling was but I finally figured it out. That feeling was pure pride!

I was proud of all the hard work SHE put into this big event. I was proud of how mature SHE has become in the past year working towards this big day. I was proud of the dress SHE bought and I didn’t have to make her return because it was inappropriate!


Then there is the flip side: (Isn’t there always!)

As I sat in the church pew watching my oldest daughter receive her Sacrament from the Bishop feeling all proud my youngest daughter turns to me and whispers in my ears: “Mom, have you ever noticed that you can see the nipples on Jesus up there on the cross?!”

  3. I loved the photo’s you put on Facebook and I can see why you’re so proud of your family. What a great bunch. It’s funny how our kids can fly on their own wings. Sad and poignant at the same time.

    Youngest daughter? Well, she is a chip off the old block isn’t she? Did you expect anything less!! LMAO!!!

  4. Congrats to your daughter and to her parents for raising such a fine young lady!

    P.S. I have noticed Jesus’s nipples in several churches!

  5. LOL! Gives a whole new meaning to “No shirt, no service”!

  6. Congratulations on your daughter’s confirmation. As for your younger daughter, at least you know she’s paying attention in church, lol.
