Sometimes I cannot believe my blessings. This morning I woke up, as I often do, with a lot of things on my mind and lots of plans for the day. I tend to have a lot of energy in the morning but also a lot of worries. I came over to the Frassati House to get a few things ready for later in the day. It was about 5:30, I would guess. I heard someone come in the front door. Soon all of front rooms are full of about a dozen students, mainly freshmen, who are going to spend the day giving a confirmation retreat in Jackson, TN. They were so happy. One of the young men had been working on his Holy Spirit talk until 3:30 a.m. Amazing.
OK, somehow I think that I can handle a day that begins like this!
