It’s Father David’s fiftith birthday today, that’s pretty exciting. He is such a sweet guy, we hope that he has many more. Little Helena who usually sits in front of us at Mass, Catherine calls her the Ambassador of Joy, produced a handmade card for the occasion. He was so happy.
In other good news I am going to wrap up our fundraiser for the fourth grade class at St Joseph’s School in California. I had a donation can out on Phil’s Camino and people responded and we raised, ready, $166 for the class. I envisioned that they would have a little year end party for themselves since they worked so hard this year. This all had it’s start a few weeks ago when some mysterious person or group sent a “Random Act of Kindness” card with some funds to us. So, the kindness is ricocheting outward.
“Ricocheting outward”, I like it, I am seeing it. Remember the Disney demonstration of what a chain reaction is, done way back in the 60’s, well maybe not. They had a gymnasium set up with wall to wall set mousetraps and on each trap they carefully placed a ping pong ball. Then to start the chain reaction they threw in one innocent lone ping pong ball and all hell broke loose with the whole gym becoming involved with the chaos.
OK, that was pretty exciting. Well off to lunch and the wood shop. There is a walk today at 4 PM, maybe the rain will hold off. Come if you can, ricocheting love, Felipe.
