First Communion – The Second Time Around

Close friends of my family offered to send me to a parochial school for a better education. One was Jewish and the other was Protestant.

Our church was very particular about photography during the Mass, so the CCD program always had a videographer tape the First Communion Mass. I wasn't going to order …

I brushed my hand through the layers of fluffy dresses hanging on the racks in the dress store.  I was breathless.  I had always pretended at home that I was a princess, and I dressed up in costumes, but this was surely her royal highnesses closet!  My mom called me over and I examined the long silky dress that she …
