To Saint John the Baptist!!! And to me.
We went to Mass this morning and then settled in for a nice relaxing day with ice cream sundaes on the menu for dessert. Why ice cream sundaes? Because it's stinking hot and humid to boot. And because the ice cream gods in Brenham, TX created this:
HOMEMADE IN THE SHADE!!!
And hey... you know who has a birthday coming up soon? Well, actually, quite a few people do (Hi, Barbara!), but I'm thinking specifically of Miss Dwija (don't act all surprised, Dweej, of course you are a June baby... we are the coolest!) If you don't know Dwija, she's a super fun lady who is trying to grow a baby despite tremendous stress and anxiety and oh yeah... just a couple of serious medical complications. Miss Cari of Clan Donaldson fame is hosting a fundraiser to help Dwija and her family and since we want to help out as much as we can, we are spreading the word far and wide and asking you to do the same thing.
So if you want to give me a gift, or give her a gift, or just feel like being generous and Christlike to a total stranger, head over there and give a little something. If you are not able to give even a smidge, I know that prayers would be welcome for Dwija and Baby B and then help spread the word around! Share it, tweet it, shout it from the rooftop. Thanks! Now, go have some ice cream! It's a solemnity!!!
