Back in the Real World
Created by OnePlusYou
Well, isn't this just...disappointing. But many more days like yesterday, and I might spoil my perfect record. For yesterday, dear Gals'n'Pals, was the day I got the e-mail, from the self-appointed Norn-in-chief at MH&U, to inform me that there were too many candidates for Holy Baptism last Sunday (seven is too many? two adults, five adorable infants? Too many?), and it took away from the SPECIALNESS of the day. Oooooooohhhhhhhhhh LAND O' GOSHEN, I said. Approximately.
I have read that in some Buddhist monasteries there is an official "reviler," whose ministry it is to criticize and insult the other monks so as to keep them humble, "Ha! You call THAT meditating? Pshaw!" We're so fortunate, that crucial role is supported by a whole roster of dedicated volunteers here at MH&U.
That said...maybe it (seriously!) helps keep my feet on the ground after all the lovely, friendly, gracious uplifting messages that have come from you since I posted about my Dad. I've never felt SO supported...and I do heartily thank you.
