Overheard

K is known for dreaming big about money.  I did the same thing:  my intent at one point was to buy Hearst Castle for my parents.  Never mind that they warned me that it was owned by the State of California and that they didn't really want it.  I wanted to make a grand gesture.  K is the same way, actively planning to buy a mansion that her sister designs and then living in it together.  (They have a lot of conversations about this hypothetical future mansion.)

At Mass yesterday, K leaned into me and made another grand gesture, this one aimed at me.  It took my breath away.  She whispered during collection, "Mom, when I grow up, I am going to give you as much money as you want to give away."  Oh my.  My girl is really so awesome.
