I stayed a bit longer after Mass in order to talk to him about my smiling when distributing Communion and how I had been approached that this was wrong. Father Brian set my mind at rest by saying "Who wouldn't be happy to share the Body of Christ with others." He also went on to say that I should pray for the person who approached me with this complaint, that the person involved needed a conversion of the heart. I feel so much better now that Father Brian has no concerns, and was indeed happy that I came to him with my concern. We had a lovely talk.
Harvey and I went to the surprise birthday celebration for his sister. Once again I felt very out of place and kind of left out. I was not included in the ladies conversations very much and when I did speak felt very much on the outside looking in. Almost as if I was being humored instead of listened to. I am slowly getting used to it, but doubt I will ever like it. Perhaps next time I will not speak at all.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
