How a Little Desk Calendar Made a World of Difference

It was one of those weeks. Everything was happening within the same seven days, and I didn’t know how I was going to get through it all. In addition to my family’s regular commitments, such as school, work, and errands, I had three deadlines to meet, parent-teacher conferences to attend, and a family party to prepare for. Oh, and two of my daughters and their teams were in volleyball playoff games. I am sure you can relate to the craziness…

Day 28: #31 Days—Quotable Friday

It is hard to believe it is the last Friday of October! This month has gone by so quickly! When I was writing my post on Dyslexia being a Family Lesson in Love, I ran across a quote about being compassionate that I thought would be perfect for today’s Quotable Friday. It applies beautifully to this topic of Dyslexia awareness, but it also has a much bigger meaning. Our world could use more kindness, patience, and gentleness in it these days,…

Day 21: #31 Days—Quotable Friday

Sometimes, I see my daughter doing everything she possibly can to appear “normal.” She really doesn’t want her classmates to know that she has Dyslexia. She’s just not quite ready to fully embrace the fact that this is part of who she is. And that’s OK; she’s only eight. But as I journey with her, I try to point out to her all of the things that make her amazing. Some of these things, these gifts, are because she has…

Day 24 :: 31 Days With Mary—Renewing Devotion

Day 24 :: 31 Days With Mary—Renewing Devotion

When people love and recite the rosary they find it makes them better. —St. Anthony Mary Claret— Feast Day: Oct. 24 There is one week left in this 31-day writing challenge. It has not been easy, but I am so glad I am doing it. Thinking and writing about Our Blessed Mother has renewed my devotion to her.

Day 19 :: 31 Days With Mary—@Pontifex

Day 19 :: 31 Days With Mary—@Pontifex

I have been struggling with some health changes that I need to make. But I have such internal conflict. On one hand, I want to make these changes, because I know I will feel better. On the other hand, I don’t want to make these changes, because they are so drastic and unconventional. I have moments of clarity and hope. But they can be so fleeting, I can’t grab hold of them long enough to create some good habits. And sometimes, well,…
