Welcome to SP! It's been a tough journey so far for me, but it's a good one. I feel like I knew all these things before, but I never really had to think about them.
I think first Communion is a lot like that too. My son is a good bit away from that still (21mo), but I know its going to hit me when I see him receive that Sacrament the first time. One Body, you know? We're all in it together, and God is right there in the thick with us. (SP's got the same idea, right? - all of us in it together. And in the thick of things, if you'll pardon the bad pun.)
First Communion reminded me of a story... My wife and I had tried Atkins for a while. We were at Mass, in the front row, kneeling during the Liturgy of the Eucharist, when my wife leans over to me. "Is Jesus a carb?" came out of her mouth and I couldn't help myself. Snorting out a laugh in the middle of a Eucharistic prayers gets you *stared* at. :)
