I just talked to Cecilia's mother, Sue and found out that I am not going to be able to attend Cecilia's baptism because of some family issues. That is disappointing, but I know that it would be best if I did not attend. I feel bad for Sue, she sounded a bit stressed about the whole thing. Her husband, Pat, said something to her that I thought was just wonderful, though. He said, "If you didn't have anything hard in your life, how would you ever become a saint?" They are great people.
So, come this Sunday, I shall be remembering the Smiths and little Cecilia in my prayers.
Hopefully the problems will be resolved soon!
