Watch Your Language . . .You Never Know Who’s Listening

Last Monday, Himself asked me how my drive home from work was.  I grumbled something about getting behind every stupid, moronic, idiot driver that was out there on the roads.

I’m sure you handled it well, he responded.

I didn’t, unfortunately.  I said a whole lot of bad words.

He was surprised.  When someone is in the car with me, I usually keep calm and watch my language.  Not when I’m alone.  All bets are off.

Your mom is there with you.


Pennies from heaven.  

My mom seemed to find money laying around wherever she went, sometimes in the oddest of places.  Most of the times it was coins, but on occasion it was paper money as well.  She and my dad started keeping a jar of “found money” and every July would tally it up and go spend it all.  One year it was well over a hundred dollars.

Now when I find coins, I look up, and say ‘hi’ to mom.  I keep a couple of those “pennies from heaven” in the cup holder in the car.  Mom rides along with me.

It must be something about Mondays that makes people exceptionally bad drivers.  I met a few more of them on the road today.  And, I didn’t say any of those “uck” words that she so disliked.

Lenten Prayer Buddies

In just one week we will be starting Lent.  I don't know about you, but I haven't given a whole lot of thought yet about what I want to do.  The one thing, I do know, is that I am looking forward to increased, focused prayer for my Prayer Buddy.

During Lent, you can say prayers, novenas, and rosaries, light candles, and offer up suffering for your secret Prayer Buddy and whatever intentions he or she specifies.  On Easter, or shortly thereafter, you will let your assigned person who you are and how you remembered them.

Those interested in participating, please email me at:
I will need from you is:
Your first name or first initial
Your blog address (or email address if you are not a blogger)
Your intentions
Your full name
Your address
(Address can be provided if your Prayer Buddy plans to send you a small remembrance at Easter)
DEADLINE FOR SIGN-UPS IS: Tuesday, February 9th

First Photo: February 2016

Ahh!  We made it out of January fairly unscathed.  Very little snow has fallen in these parts and I don't think you will hear anybody complaining.  And, if you do, we'll ignore them!

Hopefully February goes the same way.  If not, we'll get through it.  We always do.
