MY LUCKY DAY!!!!!!!!

Oh I am SO excited! First of all... I won the black serving hands!! You can understand I am over the moon considering the fact that LK items are so hard to get here! I only have a mini whisk and a shopping list so I am thrilled! I must admit I did say a little prayer...and it worked! But my luck doesn't just end there...

After a huge mess at university it looked as though I wouldn't be able to start classes again next semester but would have to wait until September. That and the fact that there is a shortage of interesting courses. Now, I am working on my MA thesis at the moment but I NEED that intellectual stimulation which I can only get in the classroom! Well it appears I can take a very interesting elective course about the cultural identity behind the Flemish and Dutch language...with a professor that I so much respect and admire! AND get this...Kirstie got chosen to read for the school Christmas mass next week! I am such a proud mom! Here's the translation of the prayer she'll read:

"Dear God,

It's almost Christmas.
We are all ready.
We hope to have a wonderful, peaceful celebration,
With Your help.

Amen"

What a happy day today has been!

Paola, I'm so happy for you! It is indeed a lucky day for you. I'm sure Kirstie will be very clever with her reading :)
