The beautiful card for Father is sitting on my desk and is being snail mailed today.
It's a note of thanks from Patty Cake to a special priest who has given myself (and many others I'm sure) full cups of inspiration through his Homilies presented at St. Mary's Cathedral over many years.
Sometimes good intentions aren't really worth anything. I intended to mail Father's card with a note weeks ago. The good news is ..I'm back on track! I want to be realistic...I need to remind myself to carve time, create time for the important notes I wish to send. After all, that's what 'Patty Cake' is all about. Don't you think there is something unique about 'snail mail' in this electronic age we live in? Do you like to receive a little note or little gift from a friend, somewhere in all the advertisements and junk mail? It's kinda like a treasure hunt everyday going through the mail for me.
This Father has the most gentle and most kind spirit. His words at Mass have been extremely motivating...because he really wants all of us to get to Heaven in the end. He may not always say what I want to hear but he says what I really need to hear. It must be both a wonderful and sometimes tough mission/job that he and other Church ministers have. I have been truly blessed, to witness an imitation of Christ, through his sharing of the Word. It doesn't get better than that.
Have a blessed week.
