I did not manage to make it to Mass today. I tried. I noted down the time from the handy weekly e-mail my parish sends out, putting it both on my personal calendar and on my work calendar so I wouldn’t forget. I left the house in plenty of time, and arrived at my destination early enough to pray for a few minutes before Mass started. However, when I got there, I found it deserted, and the whole campus locked up. Not daunted, I drove to another nearby parish, braving a whole labyrinth of construction-related road closings to get there, only to discover that their Mass had started an hour earlier, and was just now getting out. I even tried the downtown parish on my way home, with no luck. And well, three strikes and you’re out. At least God knows I tried.
Anyway, in honor of the awesome Feast of the Assumption, and in honor of the great gifts God gives in our lives, I give you this little gem of awesomeness:
For, lo, Sweet Pea has discovered her feet, and with impeccable baby logic, concluded that they must belong in her mouth.
This kid. She’s kinda awesome.
