It seems like it was just last Sunday a minute ago. So, what has changed in this past week. Well, our daughter is home from school. I picked her up last Wednesday and we also stopped in Orlando on the way home to visit a family friend. I am also a week older, that happened on Friday. Our tree is up, the Christmas menus are planned, and the cookies baked. Now all that’s left is to help decorate the Church and organize all the liturgical ministers for the two days of liturgies, cook a few meals and relax. Not sure how this happened, but I am ahead of where I usually am at this point in the season. Wait, I do know how it happened. I celebrated Advent, the whole season with deliberate intention and it made a difference.
