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.

Blogging Resumes

I know it has been a while since I have posted. My vocation is wife and mother so when those duties call, my avocation—blogging—has to wait. Just before Easter, my husband’s dear grandmother passed away. She was 102. She was buried in Arlington National Cemetery last week so I hosted several out-of-town family members who traveled to be here for the graveside service. She was a very gracious woman whom I am very pleased to have known. Please offer a prayer for the repose of her soul.

Réquiem ætérnam dona eis, Dómine,
et lux perpétua lúceat eis.
Requiéscant in pace. Amen.

May she rest in peace.

I was always very motivated to go for a run when I knew it would make the dog happier. I feel very badly that I haven't been able to do that with her for nearly 2 years. We both miss it.

And confession: do it for your kids and (future) grandkids! You'll be more valuable to them praying for them from heaven than from purgatory!
