Before it all went incredibly pear-shaped we actually had a very nice Christmas Eve at church with friends and family. There was communion, of course, and at our church it happens one of two ways, either served to you in the pew or by intinction - lining up to receive the bread that you then dip in the wine. Maya will not take communion by intinction but, she is happy to partake when it is served in the pews
This Christmas Eve as people began to line up I invited her to join me in line and she politely declined. As Grandma Linda passed by our pew she invited Maya to join her as well. To which Maya replied....
No thank you, I'm not hungry. I had three pieces of pizza for dinner.
What can I say...at least she was polite.
