Karl and I leave for Italy today! I'm so excited.
We got a bon voyage card from his mom. She wrote, "May the Lord grant you protection from forgetfulness, danger, and sickness."
1. Forgetfulness? I would never think to ask for protection against forgetfulness. I guess I've always just forgotten to do that...
2. Is it really that hard to be positive? I would like to suggest that next time, the card would read: "May the Lord grant you an alert mind, safety, and health." She is like Debbie Downer to the max, people.
