This weekend DH and I traveled home to celebrate my parents’ 49th wedding anniversary. They met 54 years ago at a Marquette University football game. (That in and of itself tells those familiar with Marquette how long ago their meeting happened!)
Darling Sister and I decided that their bedding was in dire need of refreshing, so we purchased a new comforter, shams, sheets, blankets, dust ruffle – the whole nine yards. Looks wonderful, if I do say so myself. Mom and Dad were delighted.
Then Darling Baby Brother offers his gift. DBB is a seminarian, and so has some pull us mere mortals don’t…or at least, connections to those who have pull.
His gift? An Apostolic Blessing. From THE POPE.
Trumped by our little brother. Wonder how he’s going to top that next year.
