Clare's First Communion
I've had a hard time figuring out what to say about this exceptional weekend. We have all anticipated Clare's First Communion with a lot of excitement, both for the occasion itself as well as the opportunity to get both the Seymours and the Morlans together again. None of us, however, was as thrilled as Clare. Fortunately, I believe the day lived up to her high expectations. It was a beautiful ceremony, during which she had the high honor of greeting the church assembly. Afterwards, we gathered at the house and spent the day enjoying one another's company - including that of the Lyons Family, who had flown in on the red eye that morning to celebrate this as well as Laura's baptism!
It was such a spectacularly beautiful weekend, with happy family and friends, that it is obvious God was smiling down on all of us. God bless you, sweet Clare.
