Sorry I’ve been away for so long. Thought that my post Christmas season illness was mild this year………..until I discovered I was wrong!
Have been down and out with severe sinus issues, double vision, dizziness and unable to even be near a computer.
As I gain my strength back, I’ll be returning to blogging. Due to my illness, I missed almost the entire Book Club meetings to discuss Render Unto Caesar by Archbishop Chaput. Hope to return there soon.
Still looking forward to writing about my day with Marcus Grodi!
This weekend I will be attending a seminar by Jeff Cavins. His talk will be on Revelations. I am looking forward to this event!
Near the end of February, my parish will be hosting Fr. John Trigilio from EWTN’s Web of Faith. Another event I hope to be attending this Lent.
My first year of teaching 6th grade CCD has been an interesting year. Between our days off, and being ill, I definitely feel I never developed a rhythm. Nonetheless, I am marching forward, and happily anticipate having my “children” being enrolled into the Sabbatine Privilege of wearing the Brown Scapular, introducing them to Adoration at our parish’s Adoration Chapel, and hoping to have one night of Stations of the Cross for our CCD children. Tonight I will be speaking about the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes coming up on Saturday, and the role of St. Bernadette in this beautiful apparition.
We now have a young adult living in our home, along with a brand new spanking teenager! Ahhhh, to say the least, times are interesting in our house. The youngest is still a tween, and is all boy……….never a dull moment in our home.
During my time of being ill, I would like to thank my husband. On top of his work schedule, he did much around the house with having the kids help out in pulling their weight; along with the transportation of kids to their activities.
Thank you to my children, especially Maria, the oldest. She has been my “store runner” through most of this time. Maria has also made us some very good dinners!
Theresa, has become my ”teen”, and is learning, along with doing a good job on doing her laundry. I must say, I am enjoying that I am able to open the washer and smelling “clean clothes”.
Jack, the tween, is working hard at school, and should be very proud of himself with how well he is doing. He works hard for every grade he receives. Having Theresa so close in age with him, has been a benefit to them both. It has brought out a healthy state of competition in doing their best with schoolwork.
Lord, I am extremely thankful for all the blessings you have bestowed upon me, and my family, during these times of upheaval in our life.
Enjoy your day!
