I hope all of you and your loved ones are having, or had, a very blessed Christmas.
I drove Cindy in to work yesterday as the roads were very icy. Never spun a wheel. I drove down to Rapid to see and hold that new baby. She is a cutey, but then, she’s related to me, so I wasn’t surprised at all! 🙂
I did some shopping and then we hurried home and drove up north of here to the little church at Mud Butte so I could provide music for them, as they have no one who plays any musical instrument. We rushed out of there afterwords so as to get back to Red Owl for the 6:30 Mass. Made it right at 6 and turned on the lights and I started to play as the people were coming in. I warned everyone that Fr Marcin would probably be late as it was terribly icy on the gravel between Mud Butte and Red Owl. So we sang until 6:30 when Mass was supposed to start then waited for Father. And waited. Then waited some more. Finally someone went outside and called him on a cell phone and he was off the road up north. Several took off and eventually came back with him. He had slid slightly off the road with his car. Didn’t take much to get him out. After he arrived we had a wonderful Christmas Eve Mass. A neighbor came over afterwords and ate with Cindy and I and stayed and visited pretty late for both of us old guys!
Now it is Christmas morning and I have much to be thankful for. Hope you and yours have a great day and a wonderful New Year!
