The boys got up early to go to mass this morning. It was special having three wonderful sons with me there. The younger boys wondered if there would be candles blessed(there was) and if they could bring one home(they did).My eyes started to fill as that beautiful part of the gospel was read
Lord, now you let your servant go in peace;
Your word has been fulfilled.
My eyes have seen the salvation
You have prepared in the sight of every people,
A light to reveal you to the nations and the glory of your people, Israel.
Peace, the word fulfilled, our salvation...all complete in this man-child, emmanuel. The mother , the foster-father and one bone-weary witness. Eternity captured in fragility, forever bonded.

We came home and after breakfast the boys made these oragami turtle doves.
