Most Amazing Mother's Day Gift

The most amazing Mother's Day Gift: unexpected, unplanned, sweet.
I was served communion wine by my son for the first time!
It has always been a special thing for me to notice who is passing me the communion bread/wine. For the many many years in the Episcopal Church...to look up into the eyes of a friend as they say "the blood of Christ. Given for you" The bread is given by the priest. But the wine is served by a lay person. Often that has been my hubby,
But Eric, my son in his 30s, decided to go through the training classes and be one of the Lay Persons to do this. Sunday, May 10 was his first time to serve. I saw it in the newsletter; I saw him go the the raised area and help 'set' the table; Timothy (grandson age 8) got in line and I whispered "You get to be the first person your Daddy serves"
And suddenly, I realized, as I reached for the base of the cup....
I am being served communion wine by my Son, for the first time, on Mother's Day .
