Growth in two directions

Dramatis personae: The Rev. A. S. Damick, Evangelia Damick (aged 2 yrs., 9 mos.)

Rev. Damick: Look! Snow!

Evangelia: Yes! We can play in it! It’s on the ground!

Rev. Damick: Probably not tonight, youngun.

Evangelia: Oh, well. Maybe later.

Rev. Damick: Yes, maybe later.

Evangelia: When you get small!

Rev. Damick: What?

Evangelia: When you get small!

Rev. Damick: I don’t think I’m going to get any smaller, sweetie.

Evangelia: Yes, you will! Turn small!


  1. Father, bless! Sometimes conversations with little ones are beyond the rational mind’s comprehension.

    BTW, congratulations on the birth of your son! May Christ grant him many years and may he be faithful to our Lord through all adversity.

  2. Hello Father!

    I’ve been listening to your podcast and I just feel like I would love to sit and chat with you for a few years, with many breaks for other living of course!

    Anyway, great to know you have a blog, too. This little vignette, is so sweet! What a great reminder from your daughter to remember to live in wonder! We do get caught up in the “practical” as parents, don’t we? Thanks for sharing that little moment!

    Pray for me, a sinner.


    1. Well, feel free to stop by and sit for a bit. I might even have some coffee for you around somewhere.

  3. Neil,

    Has this been a stopping place for Designers? Nice work! God bless…. I hoover around here often and just finished the last two of Fr. Andrew’s Podcasts… great stuff!

    Fr. Andrew, I have 2.5 of my own wee ones, and this stuff is always such a hoot! Blessings to you and your whole family.

    Blessings to you too Neil!


  4. Father — thanks for the offer, I’d love a coffee and a chat. Maybe someday Colorado will be closer to Pennsylvania.

    George — Thanks for the compliment and the thought for blessings! And nice work yourself!
