The ducks ( or as they most likely would state it : the stalkers) from Casa Kitchen are beginning to inhibit my freedom of expression,

I have to seriously consider changing this password.

Very seriously.

May Karma help me.

May 20th

Posted by Mummy Dearest on May-19-2019

Tomorrow is May 20th.

Anyone else have a date that pops up during important events , on their personal * timeline *?.

The most pleasantly moving was when Most Treasured Son chose to be confirmed in the Catholic Church.

While I have no qualms about saying that I am an Atheist, the cherubs all went to Catholic schools. I wanted them to be exposed to an important part of their cultural heritage The original deal was that the Father would do the church business- that went about as far as his doing the * Birds and Bees* talk.

Nowhere.

While I walked Most Treasured over to the Church for choir practice once a week, excepting funerals, I never went to a mass- I respected the Church too much to be a stinkin’ hypocrite.

All of the cherubs did that whole First Communion business. When I found myself in charge of *Religious Education * ( how absurd), I left that confirmation business up to the individual cherub .

Only Most Treasured Son chose to be confirmed.

At that moment, Opa had had a light heart attack, so all attention was focused upon him- rightly so.

I was the only one at the confirmation- although I assuredly must have taken The Baby with me.

Decked out in heels and pearls, I walked to the church in the next village over.

It was perhaps the most moving ceremony that I have ever witnessed : this seven foot tall Bishop held Most Treasured’s hands in his and told him to go forth and do good.

The Catholic Church in The Netherlands is like that : less cant, more practical aide.

Then- of course- I graduated from Smith on May 20, 1979 : I didn’t even want go to the ceremony, but wore the silly cap and gown as it all just meant the world to Mom, who sortof expected me to turn into Candace Bergen… you know, become * classy*.

In 1983 I was glad that I had done so- as on May 20, 1983 , Mom died , without very much warning.

I don’t have any heebee feelings about May 20th, simple always am aware of the date.
