things I will miss (1 of …)

28 Aug

Knowing that in ten months I will be leaving my beloved St. Andrew parish, this place and these people, I am more and more noticing things that I will miss. Last night as I was closing the blinds of my bedroom windows, preparing to prepare myself for bed, I looked out my back window. “There is something I will miss.”

I took three photos on my iPad, and deleted two: one with a stray cat roaming into the bottom right corner heading toward a drink of water from the fountain, and one that cut off the top of the statue and the top of the cross on top of the grotto. This one was the best of the three:

Things I Will Miss 01

I tried to enjoy the scene fully, hoping to engrave it in my memory.

Then I prayed a Hail Mary …

… and closed the blinds.

    Do you really have to leave Saint Andrew parish? Can’t you be like Pope Benedict – retire but still be a part of our parish? Certainly, we will very much miss you.

    This is so you to be noticing what you’re going to miss. I, too, am nearing
    retirement and just yesterday thought how much I’m going to miss my job. But it didn’t last long. Blessings for relishing the now and what God carves out for tomorrows.
