Grateful for: family … the baptismal service for Baby Mary … the elaborately decorated cookies Mary’s aunt made for the brunch … the rain-free drive home … a night in my own bed.

Remember: the sound of the rain on the little Catholic Church roof, and my nephew’s earnest chanting during the service.

Photo: outside the church, after the rain.
