The Special Day
On Sunday 20 June was a very special day for me because I was going to receive the Eucharist for the first time. I dressed up like a bride and I felt special.
My special day was ruined because I arrived late for the beginning of mass. I was so embarrassed and very nervous. I had to do the bible procession before the reading and it was very close to time.
As I was walking down the aisle, holding the bible up, I felt that my legs were going to come off.
Thanks goodness it was over and the mass continued.
After mass we had morning tea in the hall for all those who receive their first holy communion. Then my family went home and had a big feast to celebrate my special day with my brother. We had lots of relatives and friends over our house. By then I had forgotten about what happened in the church.
