ITEM! My new post is up at the Register: “Hey, You: God Is Here.” We all know God is everywhere, but how do we help ourselves remember it, and feel it? Rejected title: “You Can’t Have Prayed, You’re Still Dry!”
ITEM! The Faith and Family Mom’s Day Away last weekend was really wonderful. I’m going to write about it this week, and steal other people’s pictures, because I couldn’t find my camera. Danielle, if you’re reading this: sorry I forgot to give you that wine. We’ll have to toast you from here, instead. Salut, lovely lady. You made a lot of moms happy this weekend.
ITEM! Don’t forget, there’s still time to enter into the “What’s in the bag?” contest. Don’t put your answers in the comment box; email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, April 7 to win a two-year subscription to Faith and Family Magazine!
ITEM! Lucy gets her stitches out today! I have never seen a kid heal so fast, and I attribute that to all of your prayers. Thank you, my friends.
Here’s a picture of her, so you can see how well she’s doing. She was hiding in a tent, so I said, “Lucy, come out so I can take a picture of you!” She scrambled out, grinning and covered with magic marker (I’m hoping). I was going to wash it off for the picture, but this is, after all, SO Lucy. This is what she looks like less than a week after her terrible fall:
She is still processing what happened to her. This morning, she asked me, “Mama, is a floor the same as a ceiling?” Yes, Lucy, when you are made out of monkeys, it certainly can be.
ITEM! Does anyone want to have an open thread about working moms and NFP? Several people mentioned in the comments that working women often get left out of discussions regarding Catholics practices. I don’t have anything personal to add, but I would be more than happy to host a discussion about it. If you have discussion ideas or questions I can use to start the conversation going, please email me at email@example.com and put “working moms discussion” in the subject.
