Aside from his diagnosis as dyslexic and dysgraphic, There have been big changes afoot this year for Farmer Boy. His First Communion was this weekend, which he has spent the school year preparing for. He was very nervous – not about receiving Eucharist, but about “all those people” looking at him. Classic stage fright. I was so proud of him for managing it and pulling through. He was very pleased with himself as well. We are truly fortunate to have wonderful friends who came for his reception afterwards – he was very specific about who he wanted to invite, and I am so warmed by their efforts to make his day even more special.
He told me during school this morning that he just can’t wait to go to Mass again.
It was a wonderful day and I’m so thankful for this boy, his brother and sister, our Church family and friends.
