Blessed Palm Sunday

I was really bummed that I wasn't going to be able to make it to church this weekend. I had to work yesterday till 7, so that meant I couldn't go to the Sat mass, and then today my manager had scheduled a mandatory meeting for my department at 8:30 a.m. Our store doesn't open till 10 on Sundays so I am always able to make the 8:00 mass. Because of this meeting, and I was scheduled to start work at 10:30, it appeared I was not going to be able to make mass. And here it is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week! I was really bummed, but I missed the last meeting because of church and I was afraid if I missed this one I might be in danger of losing my job. Well, as it turns out, there is a Catholic church just down the road from where I work and they were having a mass at 10. Our meeting let out at 9:45 and I asked if I might be excused from work for 1 hour for church and she had no problem with that, so I was able to make it after all. Started my day off wonderful! Things work out.

I hope everyone else had as blessed a day.
