I have just gotten back from 10 days in France. My goodness, my brain is cooked! Who knew that speaking in French for that long would lead to thinking in French by the end of the time there!
Lourdes was beautiful, but… not exactly what I was hoping for. I was surprised that the liturgies weren’t more ‘traditional’, and that at times, it seemed too much of a ‘Disney World’ atmosphere. Still, Mary is guiding all the pilgrims towards her Son, and He will lead their hearts to Himself!
I miss reading. Like, a lot. I miss being able to grab a book off my bookshelf and sitting for an hour (or two).
I have a job for the summer!! I will be the sacristan for the Steubenville conferences on main campus! I am really excited to 1) serve in this way 2) get to know the rest of committee 3) maybe hear a couple of the talks! The great thing is, I'll have about 6 weeks at home over the course of the summer to see people and do "home-y" things.
Someone recently asked me if I was ready to go home. That’s both a yes and no answer. There are a couple more places that I wish I had been able to see (Belgium especially!), but I am also ready to dive back into American everything. And see my family and friends :)
Speaking of home, I will be home in 24 days! Yikes! It’s so hard to believe that in less than 3 weeks, exams start. And that before that, I have 3 papers due. *sigh* It’ll all get done, somehow!
And lastly but not leastly, Congratulations to my niece who made her First Holy Communion last weekend! And Happy Birthday to my godson and my mom who both celebrated birthdays last week. :)
