Yesterday as the children were notified of Bernadette's selection as winner the whole family erupted in screams of joy. How wonderful that each could be so happy and Bernadette could find so much joy through giving away so freely that which had just been given to her.
One additional signal grace was that news of Bernadette's happy selection came as the family was traveling home yesterday on the Solemnity of the Annunciation after having brought one of the Official Missionary Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe to many throughout the day in the New York area. As Maria who is the owner of the dress company is named after Our Lady of Guadalupe there is a wonderful connection on each level. It is beautiful how Our Lord creates so many connections that we may marvel at His handiwork.
