KITCHEN TABLE CHATS

Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.

Because he is my "little boy"

To All:

My oldest is spending this week jumping out of perfectly good airplanes as he completes Army Airborne school.I am turning these jumps over to God. I am also sending along a host of requests for intercessory prayers from a variety of saints. Your prayers for his safe landings would also be appreciated!

UPDATE 8/03/2006

My oldest completed his final jump last night. I must thank you all for your prayers. I am especially grateful to Julie D. at Happy Catholic for including him in her prayer requests. He said all the prayers must have helped because he landed light as a feather every jump--not even a scratch. He said there were very few injuries of his classmates. I am sure your prayers helped!!

St. Joseph of Cupertino (patron saint of paratroopers) give all soldiers who fling themselves out of perfectly good airplanes a perfectly good landing.
