Can't forget this one...

I cannot forget this comment that Jack made tonight, so I'm making it permanent. 

It is a holy day of obligation in the Catholic Church (Assumption of Mary) tomorrow and we went to Mass tonight.  Jack usually walks up to communion with us, with his little hands folded in front of him very reverently.  The priest is very good about giving the children blessings, since they can't receive communion yet.  But tonight we ended up getting in the other line with a communion minister (who do not give out blessings).  On the way back to our seats Jack started to whine saying "I didn't get a blessing!"  I picked him up and quietly whispered "Shh...we will get one after church."  Then so cutely he looked at me and said, "When do I get a magic chip?"  Referring to the communion wafer.  I had to laugh out loud and squeeze him so tight.  His innocence and inquiring mind makes my heart smile. 

Until next time...
