It has been said before, but I will say it again, "happiness is when you realize your kids turned out to be genuinely good people."
Twenty plus years ago we began the journey with Ali and became an Immaculate Conception School and Church family; most everyone I know that took the same walk will say today that it was the best decision ever made.
Today, she is and has been a teacher at Immaculate for some time and we could never improve upon the way things turned out. Our blessings spiraled out of control year after year and to date.
Next year, our grandchild will be entering pre-k at Immaculate too...sitting in the same classrooms, attending mass and making her own Immaculate memories much like her Mom, Dad, Godfather, Godmother and Uncle did in their day.
No doubt we count our blessings every day; living in love and gratitude!
