Rest in Him

Oh my friends! So much has happened over these last couple of months.  It has only been a couple of months since the virus came and changed everything? Can you imagine that?  I have a hard time wrapping my brain around that- only a couple of months.  And yet - it is true.  The beginning... Continue Reading →

Just a little Windex

I finally got to a project I have been wanting to do... washing my windshield.  Seems like an easy quick project, more of a quick task than a project.  Nothing to write home about.  However, I have the hardest time remembering - at the right time.  I remember all the time that I need to...

Happy Feast of St. Therese!

By my kitchen window since as long as I can remember, in every house we have lived in, I have had this picture of St. Therese.  My memory fails me as to its origin, but I do believe I picked it up in Lisieux during my World Youth Day pilgrimage in high school.  It is... Continue Reading →

Faith to Move Mountains

Our youngest is named after one of my favorite saints.  St. André Bessette.  I love St. Andre, for so many reasons.  His humility was so beautiful.  I love that he was simple - he loved God, and God loved him.  He lived his life to simply love God, in every aspect. In every moment that came, he... Continue Reading →

Summer Projects

As the cooler weather comes in through our windows, the grocery stores have started to display their pumpkins, the children settle into the daily familiar hum of school again, and the leaves start to slowly display their vibrant colors, it appears fall has arrived.  And technically, summer did just end on the calendar. But, I've... Continue Reading →

Two Good Men

Summer Slowing

Summer is sneaking up upon us.   Maybe because we had winter until May here in MA (at least it seemed that way).  Or perhaps we have just been in the very busy season of spring and baseball and end of the year activities.  I'm never quite ready for summer, never have everything planned, but then...

Feast of the Ascension

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." ~ Matthew 28:19 "And when He had... Continue Reading →

Children Are Drawn To Goodness

Tonight, we had just gotten home from a baseball game - one of those little coach pitch games that are cute and only an hour or so.  Which is exactly long enough because the two littlest ones are so ready for bed by the end.  A two hour game would do us in. We get... Continue Reading →
