The book has arrived — and oh, it looks luverly!
The UPS guy rang the doorbellÂ just as I was getting ready to go give a presentation to theÂ moms’ group at my childhood parish.Â I heard the door open and close and then Scott came into the back of the house, box in hand, with the boys trailing excitedly behind him.
I put down the makeup, sat on the bed, opened the box and pulled out a book.Â Oh, it’s so pretty! — the photo doesn’t do it justice.Â And it smells so good, too … I could get seriously drunk on that new-book scent.
The boys, catching my enthusiasm, each grabbed a copy and began rifling through it.Â Â After a moment, five-year-old Luke handed it back with the best line of the night.Â “I forgot I can’t read,” he said apologetically.
But I can, and what’s cool about this book is that only one-fourth of it is already known to me.Â I can’t wait to read what the other three authors wrote, and to make their wisdom a part of my daily prayer routine.
