Last week my small success was getting my blog written, however I did FAIL to link it to the original on CatholicMom.com (at least I thought I did, when I went to grab the link mysteriously my link had joined the others - yeah for internet fairies!).
Let's see what this week brought:
1. Remembered to send out prayer requests to my Google Search, "Nuns that Pray" finds! Including The Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, who support themselves in one way by selling Altar Breads. In thanksgiving for their prayers, I've shared their info in my 'photo of the week'. Seriously though - we all need prayer - lots of it!! These amazing women have dedicated their lives to prayer - how grateful I am to their YES to God... and how often I take advantage of it! Really that's what I Google to find Prayer Request pages, search "nuns that pray" - it yields a bumper crop! Praise God!
2. Had the pleasure of being a Guest on Monday Morning Catholic a podcast from my friend, Joanne Mercier. I was super intimated to accept the invitation because the shows that I had caught, I thought, wow these people really know their Liturgy and while I am absolutely in LOVE with the Catholic mass, I lack in the ritual know-how. Joanne told me to just pay attention to the Homily, and I'd be fine. Well this week, that was actually easier than normal because I was not interpreting the Mass for my daughter. Also playing in my favor - a working air conditioner, a very energetic Priest, and a later Mass when I am considerably more alert! Be sure to download and listen when you get a chance: How's Your Soil?
3. Cleaned my daughter's room! and... in time for the Big Brother Big Sister foundation pick up today. #Score!
