Missed Blessings

Or is it mixed blessings?

My parents were Catholic, so for the early part of my life I was, too. We had a nighttime tradition, just before bedtime, of getting a blessing from our parents.

We’d have a very short prayer-not much more complicated than the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, except more free-style and less rehearsed. After the prayer we’d line up in front of our parents for our blessing.
