First Communion

Violet celebrated her First Eucharist on Sunday.

The Mass was beautiful.  Violet was beautiful.  Her faith is beautiful.  And humbling.

I spent the morning stressed about getting to church on time, the lunch to follow, the combination of seven year old with white everything.  You know, the things that matter when your daughter is about to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time.

Thankfully, my family knows me and loves me and ignores my crazy.

We had a simple lunch, a cake, a few lovely gifts and I feel stupid for being such a crabby-pants-worry-wart, but that’s usually how it goes.

  • Yes, I am catching up a bit. Just wanted to say, these photos are wonderful! Your daughter has such a beautiful, expressive face. (And I love the name Violet.) Also, I would worry about the same things, too. And know it was crazy. But do it anyway.

    • Thank you, Rita! She's named after my Gram (whose name was actually Elsie Erica Violet but always went by Vi) and she's absolutely something.
