A friend of mine posted this photo on Facebook this week, and it made me smile…..
This photo was taken on May 7, 1961?, the day I, along with my fellow second graders, received our First Holy Communion. I must have studied this photo for an hour, trying to figure out who was who, where my second grade boyfriend was, how we could all have looked so freshly scrubbed and holy. My cousin David is the furthest on the left, as cute as a bug in a rug. Our teacher, Sister Colista, is barely poking her head above us in the upper left, second row from the top. She was mean as a snake. As for this holy little nana, I am in the top row, furthest to the right.
Have a great weekend.
