Today, we took our newly born baby boy to church for the first time . It was the first outing for me and him, after the delivery ( surgery) of last week.
To go out was not easy for me, i did it because my 3 years boy asked me : ” mum why don’t you go out with us anymore? ” couldnt answer him , i cant walk normally , therefore i tried to do an effort and join the boys!
It took me less than 5 min to wear my clothes; take raf, “laflefou” as we say in lebanese, and head to church.
Bref, at the end of the mass , a friend asked the priest to pray for rafael.
What was funny and we all laughed was that, after he began his prayer, the priest stopped and asked us, “what is her name?” Her was the newly born.
We explained that “his” name is rafael and he is a boy.
The abouna laughingly looked at me and said and why is he wrapped up in a pink blanket?!
I was surprised, hein? My response was ” machina abouna, we went out in less that 5 min, we didnt want to be late for the mass, and plus the beautiful pink hrem/ blanket was mine when i was young”! 🙂
We all laughed and the prayer for the newborn was just Beautiful!
A wonderful blessing!
For us Pink is for…. girls and boys!
Ps: when i told my mum the story for her to laugh, she didn’t, and she asked me where did you put the blue hrem?!
Rody and i were like grrrrr colors colors again!
Em jn w rafael 🙂
