A few weeks ago, I started noticing signs along the roadside for a Festival at St Barbara's Church
In the back of my mind, I made a mental note of the date thinking it might be fun for us to check it out
The week of the Festival, I said aloud to Lucy as we drove home
Lucy, what do you think of going to St Barbara's Festival this weekend?
I watched her in my rear view mirror waiting for a response
Lucy, who had her nose buried in book, lowered it down onto her lap in slow motion and looked at me with her mouth agape and after a few seconds of silence said in a mixed tone of disbelief and amazement
Mama! Miss Barbara is my teacher AND a Saint????
Yes Lucy, yes she is......
