Swear I’m not that ugly as in the newspaper
I have now been a full CATHOLIC for 6 weeks! How incredible. I must say, that the Spirit has blessed me with unlimited supplies of happiness and joy. Not a day goes by without me feeling God close by me. My life has truly resurrected its self and I am so alive.
I was picked as some sort of poster girl for God’s work, so I had my face all over a page in the Scottish Catholic Observer, which was incredibly humbling and also a little embarrassing because the photograph was taken MINUTES after I was Baptised, Confirmed and had my First Communion all in one glorious night - so my face looks RIDICULOUS. Everyone said I literally didn’t stop smiling once - my face HURT, and I was really, very nervous. I had a family dinner afterwards to celebrate, so the pressure of that combined with the sheer VOLUME of emotion involved in getting THREE SACRAMENTS in one go was absolutely mind-boggling and I can say I was the most exhausted I have ever been in my life.
It was beautiful.
I would like to thank everyone on here that communicated with me during my RCIA journey, you are all wonderful.
I AM THE BLANKET QUEEN.
I wish I could stay wrapped up in blankets forever. Or not really, I want to see and experience things but ultimately I’d love to build a home with someone that I can always come back to and feel safe and excited by the little things - like spending time under and around blankets. So basically what I do now except on a more permanent, long term, and not so lonely scale.
Today I got up super early to give my mum gifts. Then I went to work for a couple of hours which was interesting to say the least. This morning was quite thought heavy and I don’t know, it was nice for it to be thought heavy about ideas rather than people for a change (I’m always thinking about people). Then I met up with a lovely mate and we went to see The Hunger Games. Now I will understand the references every third post on tumblr makes… I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a great movie. Visited my gran before I came back home.
I’ve enjoyed today. Feeling a bit off. A bit apprehensive. A little worried about the sort of things we all probably worry about but I still really enjoyed today and I think it is important to notice that.
Stephanie, seeing your face a moment ago was like looking at a very cherished thing. Familiar and exciting at the same time. I found you on Facebook but I can’t add you - you add me http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003715302118
