I had the 6:30 a.m. Mass this morning and then worked on the pastor’s page for next Sunday’s bulletin. At Noon, I had to be at two places at one time: a restaurant and in our church for a funeral Mass. I celebrated the funeral and then went out to lunch afterwards.
The reason for the meal? It was one year ago today that my aunt passed away. I couldn’t believe that it’s been a year already. Some of her family and friends wanted to gather for lunch so I was able to join them at 12:50 p.m. It wasn’t too late, though. They had been visiting and eating appetizers up to that point and the waitress had just put in their orders for lunch when I arrived. So, I added my order to the list and they all came out together.
I didn’t quite know what I wanted for lunch, by the way, so I told the waitress to surprise me. I liked what “I” ordered. I think Auntie Connie would have gotten a kick out of that.
We laughed and laughed thinking about the many things that my aunt has said and/or done throughout the years. It was good to get together. We’ve already got next year planned.
