A Special Day!

Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
C.S. Lewis

Sunday was Miss Maddy's First Communion. What a special day! She looked so beautiful and was so excited and a wee bit nervous about receiving the Eucharist for the very first time. I saw her with a good friend just before they had to line up and they were whispering encouragement to each other!

It was a really lovely day and so wonderful to celebrate such a momentous occasion on one of God's most beautiful spring days. All of a sudden, Sunday was the day the pear trees and magnolia trees bloomed -- so beautiful!


Of course, before we left for church, Mickey HAD to get in a picture with Maddy. That silly Mouse -- he waited in the car at church, but then joined us for dinner afterwards!

Maddy looked soooo adorable! I love her dress. I am sure she was a little nervous. You couldn't have asked for a better day -- the weather was perfect!

The Mouse is waiting patiently for you to get there! She must be counting down the days!
