Day 283: Crying is hard work!

Crying is hard work!
Today my two eldest grandsons were confirmed.
This necessitated my dressing up, also hard work.
But, I didn't expect to get so emotional.

Jordan Salloum being confirmed

This was the culmination of their months of study.
Each confirmant's name, photo & their chosen bible verse 
was projected while they were being confirmed.

Something about seeing thirty fresh-faced teenagers,
robed and proudly, publicly confirming their faith,
 in front of a church full of family and friends ...
brought this grandma to tears.  Lots of tears.

A beautiful, touching event ...

a happy family ...

proud Grandparents ...

a proud Uncle!

And a comedian younger brother!
