Get together with girls from Alcalá de Guadaíra (Seville, Spain) April 18, 2015.
On Saturday, April 18, 2015 we had a girl’s get-together at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Eagle, in Alcalá de Guadaíra. As usual, we began by making tags with our names to identify ourselves, because we always have new girls. We then played until around 12 noon and afterwards, we headed to the Tabernacle to greet Our Lady and the Lord and start the get together off on the right foot.
After praying, we went out to do the handcraft, a jewelry box made out of match boxes, felt fabric and gift wrap. We did this with mother's day in mind, since we will not have a get together until after that date. Although it seemed that it was going to be very difficult to perform, with a little organization and eagerness, most of the girls got it finished on time, and the rest did the same after eating. While the girls were doing the handcraft, they also had the opportunity to go to confession. We give many thanks to the Lord, and the priest who came, because it has been one more month that the girls have been able to benefit from this sacrament.
At the end of doing the handcraft we realized how hungry we were and we saw that it was time to eat lunch. Since it was a beautiful day we were able to eat outside, thanks be to God! Afterwards we split into three different age groups to have a meeting about Truth and Lies. In conclusion we learned that if we get into the habit of lying, no one will be able to rely on us and our word will not mean anything.
After the meeting, the older girls went to the kitchen to prepare some waffles and the younger ones stayed playing outdoors. We ended the get together by snacking on the tasty waffles, until next time!.
