I know that it is better to give than to receive, but receiving is nice too!
I was touched to receive Christmas gifts from several of my students (I’m sure it was their parents who put them up to it!). What a nice gesture to express appreciation for the partnership we catechists enter into with parents.
I was also delighted to receive a beautiful leather bound New American Bible from my DRE, Arlene. It will assume it’s rightful position at my bedside.
Oh, yeah, back to the kids. As one of the girls was leaving class Monday night, she said, “Merry Christmas! I’ll bring your gift next time…I left it at home!” These kids are something else, aren’t they?
