Today’s find: Homecoming

One of the first things you notice when you enter the gymnasium at De Smet Jesuit High School are the championship banners. There are literally dozens of them lining the walls, hailing the stellar seasons of bygone teams in basketball, soccer and many other sports.

Now, you won’t find the names of my sons — both De Smet alums — listed on any of the banners. They had the misfortune of inheriting their father’s athletic genes. (Ahem!) Even so, I experienced a triumphant homecoming of sorts on Christmas Eve, when our eldest son packed ’em in for another venerable school tradition.

Today’s find: What Mary Knew

A big part of our family got together for a Christmas celebration last night…and as I looked around the room at the three generations of Schroeders assembled…I was moved to consider what a blessing it is to have a loving family. Not a perfect family — not by a long shot. But certainly, a loving family. And in that love we share, we are witness to the greatest gift of all: God’s love for each of us.

I suspect it’s something like what filled Mary’s heart, when she first cradled her precious child. And so once again, I give thanks for the gift that children (and parents and grandchildren) are in my life.
