One of a parent’s main responsibility is to establish a religion for their child. Brian and I, both being Roman Catholics, decided it’s time to have Sophia baptized. I was baptized in The Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace or more popularly known as The EDSA Shrine. If you pass by EDSA often, you’re prolly familiar with the church. Some think it’s only a statue amidst the elevated highways of EDSA, only to find out that there is a church below. That being said, I asked Brian if we can have Sophia baptized in EDSA Shrine. He agreed. Being a very famous landmark, reserving a spot on weekends will require you to do it a month before. So last December 2015, we booked a date at the end of January this year.
That is why this coming Saturday, my daughter will join the Christian community and finally be a child of God. It sounds festive, but there’s still so much to do! The souvenirs needs to be displayed with ribbons, the balloons need to be tested, Sophia needs a photo shoot for the photo booth, I need to prepare a guest list, I need to make a few calls, remind the guests of the event (we didn’t have any invitation), and so much more I cannot remember at the moment.
I don’t have a project yet at work, so my idle time is spent planning, and planning, and more planning. I’m cutting it close, I know. The event is this Saturday, I have to report to work until Thursday (hopefully, if my leave for Friday is granted). Sigh. I’m known for procrastinating, but this is one thing I shouldn’t be rushing.
With hopes of having an awesome, successful, and blessed christening this Saturday, I end my post. See you!
xoxo, Mrs. Cruz ❤
