Today Joey received his 1st Communion. It was a very special and emotional day.
Each year when I watch the First Communicants walk down the aisle I get emotional. They look like mini brides and grooms and it just reminds me of how fast these little ones grow. Watching my oldest child solemnly walk down the aisle to receive his First Communion made me that much more emotional.
Joey was so excited and nervous for this day to come and I was just so proud of him. So happy for him. He really is such a good boy.

I am so proud of you Joey. I love you. God Bless you, honey!
Be grateful for each new day. A new day that you have never lived before. Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably. We can squander, neglect, or use them. Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
