(Vol. XV for Me)
The Busy-ness Edition
Between sacramental prep, the start of baseball and continued work on my upcoming talks, the month of April has seemed more like Advent. So much to do, so little month! It’s not that I mind any of these obligations, mind you—it’s not like I’m, say, spending my days at the oncologist’s or anything like that. (Thank goodness.)
And plus all these baseball games are great for getting my buns outside.
Except yesterday I brought bars, not buns.
Speaking of sacramental prep, I have received numerous requests for a copy of our First Communion novena. I have uploaded it as a Google Document and you may find it here. Keep in mind that this is a novena given to us as part of the First Sacrament preparation program through my church, and all glory & honor should go to them!
Baseball has been going great. You think I’m kidding, perhaps, about needing this excuse to get outside but I’m not! I am loving these days at the baseball field.
Plus I just look at all those earnest, tousle-headed boys and I think…
…what an awesome sport.
May I ask your opinion for one of the speeches I’m writing? The name of the talk is “Keep your Eyes on your own Work” and in it I’ll be discussing the dangers of comparing ourselves to other soccer moms/blogging moms/home schooling moms/etc.
(You get the idea.)
Is this a problem for you? What do you do to remedy it?
I was pleased as punch to see my IRL friend Erin get a shout-out on Conversion Diary today. Erin is as smart as they come and yet, so sweet and accessible and helpful, especially when it comes to weight loss.
As someone who struggles daily with food-related choices, I really appreciate this series and the fact that if ever I’m having a really hard day—and I do, trust me—I can turn to Erin for both prayers and counsel.
Not surprisingly, Baby Anthony’s first word was “hot.” This is in direct correlation to all the coffee he’s seen his mother drinking and the many cups he’s tried to intercept.
It’s like his baptism by fire, only mocha-flavored.
Let’s end this busy-ness post on a peaceful note, shall we? If you hover your mouse over the following photo, you will see one of the key ingredients to our most frantic days.
May you all get yourself some of this today.
