The Unexpected Benefits of Chocolate Covered Donuts

    photo:     I’ve begun attending 8 AM Mass at St. Mary’s on Sunday mornings. If you’d told me a year ago, I’d be doing this, I would have laughed because I’ve never been a morning person.   On a recent phone call, I told Mom I began going to the 8 AM Mass because Ken brought donuts from Daylight Donuts along with freshly made coffee.   I’ll do just about anything for a chocolate covered donut, or two.   8 AM Sunday Mass is a natural outgrowth of attending 8 AM Mass on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, which is again something that I never thought I would find myself doing. Again. Not a morning person.   But I’ve discovered that if there’s a good reason I’ll get up. In this case, my good reason is I really enjoy Mass, even four early mornings a week.   Perhaps more surprising for an introvert like myself, I came for the chocolate covered donuts, but stayed for the community. There’s always a small group who hang around after Mass, ‘fellowship’ is the term Mom would use
