|Lucy is building block towers, as usual, and just beside the |
tower is the bookcase with the prayer books she's suddenly so
I took both Lucy and Linus to Mass by myself this morning for the first time. When I went forward to receive Communion, Lucy walked with me instead of being carried as she usually is, and when I knelt at the altar rail, Lucy knelt there beside me with her face right at the height of the rail. And when we left the church after Mass, and I genuflected before leaving the church, she did also.
More and more, Lucy imitates what she sees me do. If I do the right things, then by the time she reaches the age of reason, she will already have good habits which will easily become virtue, and if I don't, the the easiest opportunity will have been wasted. The days when they are so impressionable are so precious. I pray I will use them well.
