Yesterday, I wrote about my mother-in-law’s courageous struggle with being away from the Eucharist. Last night, after Mass, we went to dinner, and she shared exciting news: in the mail yesterday there was a letter from the diocese, and the annulment went through.

**pause for much rejoicing**

We’re all jumping up and down…and she’s already planning, planning, planning (because yes, there must be a small wedding and a reception to follow).
