A Proud Moment
We were so proud last Saturday when Andrew received his first holy communion! He looked so handsome in his suit and read so well in front of a full church. During one song, all the kids stood at the end of the pew and sang to us, using sign language to go along with the song "Taste and See." It brought tears to this proud mom's eyes. Here is a poem I wrote about the special event:
Happy parents, friends and family
gathered together to proudly see,
their sweet young girl or boy
receive first holy communion with joy.
Flowers decorated the altar and pews
and everyone dressed in their best shoes.
Together they prayed in reverence
and watched with glee the innocence.
As each one took the bread and wine,
the choir sang glorious tunes divine.
After the service, all went to the hall
to celebrate with cake and pictures for all.
The day was a tremendously fine event,
one not to be forgotten; a proud moment.
