Dylan, our 1st grandchild was born ten years ago today on the feast of St. Augustine. It seems like yesterday that I was pacing in the lobby of the hospital waiting for his arrival.
Our granddaughter Rosalie will celebrate her birthday tomorrow. Her wonderful Mom, our daughter in law, Aileen celebrated her birthday earlier this month. My Mom celebrated 80 plus years of life on the 23rd.
August 19th marked the 6th anniversary of my favorite deacon’s ordination.
July had a few Ad Multos Annos too.
My son Sean and his wife Aileen celebrated 15 years of Holy Matrimony; and my favorite deacon and I celebrated our 39th anniversary. Our Daughter Cathleen celebrated a birthday on the 31st.
Praise God. Life is both wonderful and hard. It is good to remember to praise God always even after I have cried out, “you have got to be kidding me God”.
