notes for confession

I was late for church. 

We have done so well every Sunday despite the craziness of trying to get out of the house. But this morning, I wasn't just late. I was very, very late. 

My boys made it 30 minutes earlier because of  Scout Sunday. They're prepared!

My girls and I were late... And it's all because of my pure negligence. 

smiling here... but not when entering during the readings. 

Because I overslept. I woke up but still decided to cuddle with Lucy. 

Because I read my email for a couple of minutes instead of heading downstairs. 

I decided to take a shower instead of just changing. 

Then when the baby woke up I knew she had to be fed. But I kept going and prepping for Mass. 
The baby cried when I was about to place her in the carrier. I cannot bear hearing a baby cry specially since I know what she needs. 

So I sat and fed her. I fixed Isabel's hair with one hand. Never done that before but you gotta do what you gotta do. At that point, I knew we were gonna be late. Ugh.


Lucy ate so fast. Thanks, sweetheart. 

And finally we were out the door.

One thing about being late is that all the great parking spots are gone. I still went to the school parking even though my gut instinct told me there will be NO spots. I did anyway.

I passed once and confirmed what I initially thought and then turned around to park on the street. 

I had to parallel park which took another couple of minutes. The walk was a tad slower than I anticipated with a preschooler and the baby. 

It's not their fault. I take all the blame for being late.

I so needed the grace for this day and coming week. Once, I skipped communion because it didn't feel right as I was gone most of the Mass. I was working and on-call. I missed the readings and part of the homily. So I didn't go to communion. I felt so so sad then. I missed the grace. I missed receiving the Lord. :(

Today, my heart was telling me I cannot receive communion.... But I did anyway. I told myself I needed the grace. I didn't know how I could endure a week without receiving the Lord. 

So that's another confession... Maybe I should not have received communion since I was VERY late. But I did anyway.
