We weren't able to get to Agape Vespers as DD3 was up most of the night before with a dreadful chest infection and accompanying cough. If I just say "coughing until she was virtually sick" and "at least 17 times" and then draw a discreet veil over the rest of the night, you will get my drift..........
We could not get to Vespers, but her beloved Godmother drove out of her way to come and visit all of us on her way home, which was a delight and a blessing !
The lampada burnt brightly all day, and the words of the troparion were on my lips each time I walked past the icon corner.
It was a good day. And, thank goodness, DD3 is very much improved today !
