I always envied couples whose parents lived in separate cities. Why? Because when you visit either one you are not torn as to which house you will stay or who you will eat lunch with or who you will eat dinner with or how much time you spend with each. When we visit BR we are always torn between two families. We were there this weekend specifically for the First Communion and to see our California family members. But....this was Mother's Day weekend too! Needless to say, we did a LOT of visiting! Not complaining because it was fantastic to see so much family in one weekend but we have got to keep moving if we want to fit it all into one weekend! Luckily our two sisters are very accommodating and manage to host everyone at their houses to cut down on the traveling.
The First Communion was lovely. I just loved seeing all the kids in their white clothes all looking so full of anticipation and hope. We could all learn something from them. Wouldn't it be perfect if we had that same hope and excitement every time we received Communion? We should....but speaking for myself here...we don't. They were the perfect picture....just look for yourselves.
