Sick Day

When your almost 6 year old girl child is ill

You just park her on the couch with a blanket, the PotteryBarnKids catalog, and a pen. Circle away baby; dream on.

Then you make hot chocolate for the 3 year old boy child.
He looks so much more distinguished throwing a fit with a mustache.

And you put the baby to bed in your bed and don't take a picture because while she might be able to sleep through any and all loud noises, she will certainly wake to the flash of light from a camera and only a fool wakes a sleeping baby.

Corporal works of mercy, right here, right now. How hard can it be?

  1. It is difficult sometimes when I'm raring to go out and CHANGE THE WORLD and feeling that I'm NOT DOING ENOUGH to remind myself that the two great commandments are to Love God with your whole heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourself and our closest neighbors are our own families. The path to heaven is made of temporal minutes and chosing to love, right now, in this moment. It is not always the easiest thing to do-my ego tends to get in the way. You are fabulous Anne! Credo. There is so much encouragement in what we believe. :-) Keep up the good works. :-)
