“Home” for the Holidays

Once again this year, DH and I packed up the cats, and made our Christmas pilgrimage to the north to spend the holiday at his sister’s house.  I really like it when we go there for Christmas, because that means we get to do Christmas with his family, my Dad, and usually my brother-in-law’s family.  … Continue reading »

Parenthood

This past weekend was Mother’s Day, and it got me thinking a lot about my parents, and what it really means to be a parent. At mass on Sunday, we of course recognized all of the mothers and the hard work they do for their children. However, it was really Fr. Gary’s homily that resonated … Continue reading »
