Quiet time

For some reason, we've been hit with a lot of germs this Lent.  It seems never ending, really.  Right now, we're in the midst of a stomach bug from the youngest rascal, so we haven't really done much.   I'm tired out, and heading up to my bed with a cup of tea and a book to spend a little time in peace and quiet.

So today's blessing is my book.   I'm thankful to have some time to relax and recover from caring for sick kids, and I'm thankful to finally get a chance to read this book.  It's been suggested to me a couple of times now, with our impending adoption and bringing a child with Down Syndrome into our family, so I feel blessed to just be able to sit and read it.  I feel doubly blessed because the reason I even HAVE this book today is because we were able to go down to the diocesan center and have Bishop Olmsted bless the rosaries that we're selling for our adoption fund.   Not only did he take the time to talk with us (and play with the boys a bit) and bless the rosaries, but he was the one who gave me the book that I'd been wanting to read.  I'm very thankful!

Now it's off to enjoy my blessing from today...Good night, all!

  1. you also might wanna check out Same Lake, Different Boat. I really enjoyed that last semester when I took a class on ministering to families of people with disabilities. You might wanna check out Joni and Friends of Arizona. It'll be a great help to you. Especially the family retreats.
