And that Friday night was no exception.
The boys bought books (including a sports almanac and a music book), Timothy purchased an iPod case, and I found an absolute treasure.
There on a shelf, still wrapped in cellophane from when it was originally purchased, was a Catholic Family Album published by Regina Press and stamped with an authentic Vatican Library Collection Seal. It was beautifully decorated with religious artwork and Sacred Scripture, with thick photo framed pages to insert pictures.
And with my mother's 70th birthday a week away, it was meant to be.
Love it when things work out like that ...
