Last weekend, two of my favorite people completed the sacrament of confirmation in the Catholic Church. Paige asked me to be her sponsor. Sean asked his friend Michael.

Yes, we were all dressed up for the church service, but changed once we got back to the house.
It was a blessed day. The priest gave a wonderful sermon about how just seeing God in others makes Him so happy. He wants us to see Him in everyone. If we do, we are doing our best. The rest comes naturally. As I was sitting in the church, surrounded by the excitement and energy of today's youth, I felt...inspired. I remember liking what they like and laughing at what they laugh at. I remember feeling how they feel...These young adults were good people who are surrounded by good people. Made me a touch less scared to face the teenage years with my own children. I was happy and excited for them to all move forward, to expand, to seek, to explore...
But how could I not also remember when they looked like this...
Sean, Paige and Sara have been a very special and important part of my life for 13 years now. While sitting in the church, we joked about Sean being a sponsor for Salvatore and Paige being a sponsor for Valentina one day...Will you read about THAT post some day? :)
