I’m not religious and to maintain Godparent status I won’t admit the frequency in which we attend Mass. With that preface, I admit that Pope Francis speaks to the Catholic in me. My unwavering aversion is life is hypocrisy and I’ve too often felt that the church is a leading perpetrator. Francis is different. He’s humble, sincere and appears to truly live the message of God. I believe there are lessons to be learned and tomorrow we will go to church.
Today, I’ll be celebrating Christmas with Mom, B and Aunt Margaret. Since Danny works, he’ll join us for a bit before we head to his family for the big celebration. It’s always fun to have the nieces and nephews together for the holiday, I remember my first Christmas with the family and how little everyone was. Now they’re almost all double-digits. Christmas morning will be the two of us and we’ll go to Aunt Mikki’s in the evening. Friday I’m taking B rock-wall climbing for my sibling gift to her. Then we’re going downtown for some casino nights. The weekend will be low key with no scheduled plans! Unbelievable.
