Ladies and gentlemen, I interrupt this week of blogging book releases to share just a little something beautiful. Last night at Ash Wednesday, two of my six children participated far more than usual. My five-year-old Michael did really well following along with the liturgy and readings. Even better, when he got lost, he was disappointed! He cared! But equally moving to me as a mother was that my newly-four-year-old Anastasia (we call her Tasy) participated in praying the litany! Now, don’t get me wrong, she said each line exactly after everyone else said it. 🙂 But the something beautiful is that our pastor allowed the time for her to do it. All of those “Have mercy”‘s melted my heart.
