Everyday Epiphanies

Ever since we told the world that we were expecting a baby we have received a tremendous outpouring of support from you, and we cannot be more thankful. We have received countless well wishes, and tidbits of advice and insight into parenthood. I have found that most of these interactions follow a similar format. First, the person asks when the baby is due, and one of us replies with, “February 27th”. The next reaction is threefold. First, the questioner gives a short gasp or comment and their eyes get very large. The second step is to tell us what we should dread. This usually is sleep or fecal related. “Get sleep while you can, but once he’s here you’re done with getting eight hours a night!” and “I hope you know how to change a diaper!” (I don’t) are common second step responses. The third step is a cryptic message of hope such as, “But, oh man, it is worth it… Once you see them start to grow… well you’ll see. It’s the best thing in the world.”
Blessings,
Fr. Nick

Alfred Lord Tennyson

This poem, by Alfred Lord Tennyson, perfectly describes the passing of the old year into the new.  It has been set to music by a number of different composers.  The choir rehearses on Thursdays at 6:30, come sing with us!
