A Great day to call your grandmother!

After reading to Buck and Honeybee about Saint Anne in
 Once Upon a Time SaintsOnce upon a Time Saints

this morning and reading the book that Hoenybee just had to hear
Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs

before we watched Mass on Ewtn, I decided to call and talk with my grandmother while I fixed up a big batch of Ramen noodles for lunch :)

I'm so blessed to have known all of my grandparents even a set of great-grandparents!  May we all remember to turn to good Saint Anne, our heavenly grandmother, with our prayers and petitions.  We can ask her to pray for our decesed grandmothers today too!

Have a blessed day!

A Blessed Woman's Daybook

I'm pondering ~ How things change.  You think you know exactly what God's plan is for you and then you are reminded how easy it is to get carried away and want to make your own plans.  We have come to the realization that God wants us to stay where we are.  So, no move for us now.  We are peaceful with it and are trusting in God's will for us.

I'm thankful for ~ My husband and children.  I am so abundantly blessed!

Honey for my soul ~ A five year old that wakes up and chooses to snuggle up on the couch with her big sister and watch Don Bosco.  It such a wonderful movie and I love to see my son learning such love and devotion through this awesome saint!

Around the house ~ We are doing lots of rearranging and will be painting soon.  I think this will be a welcome change for us all and hope to be finished for the new school year. 

Serving God ~ I'm excited about the call to teach  serve the 7th grade PSR class this fall with my honey.  We've hoped to be able to serve our Lord together in this way for a while now.  May we all grow closer to God in the sharing of our beautiful faith!

I'm praying for ~ peace and trust in God's will - for those I love.

Praying the Rosary keeps us close to Jesus
