First Communion for Henry
Today was a big day for Henry. He had his first communion. I remember how important and magical First Communion felt for me...none of the details, but I remember my dress and how important I felt receiving the eucharist. Turns out, my first communion was in the same church as where Henry had his today.
The church did a wonderful job. We really adore the priest. He is very down to earth and gives practical, heart felt sermons. He is very sincere and approachable and genuinely enthusiastic. I have to admit that I got very emotional for Henry. I was so proud of him and he was so proud of himself.
We were lucky enough to have my parents and Gordon there to help celebrate. He also had his best friend Jack and Jack's wonderful family.
A really, really great day.
