Nice Surprise!

I got a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday.

It appears that my uncle Bob is cleaning out some closets in his home and came across an invitation to my Christening. He was nice enough to send it to me so I can have a memento of the day I became Catholic. I was very touched and happy to receive it.

I was baptized on Sunday, October 24, 1982, which happens to be Bob's birthday! I was baptized at 1:45 p.m. at Blessed Sacrament Church. There was also apparently a party afterward at my parents' house.

I told my dad about the invitation that night and he said, "I didn't know we sent out invitations." And that's, I suppose, why it's in my mom's handwriting.

So, thanks, Bob, for thinking of me! :)
