Friday Fun Day

What's on tap for your weekend?  I have another busy one.  First Eucharist retreat on Saturday morning and a Confirmation Rite on Sunday morning followed by Confirmation practice.  I'm looking forward to May so that I'm able to spend more time at home with my family.

Like weeds!

Our kids are growing like crazy.  We shopped for Easter outfits last week and I had to buy our son men's size 9 shoes.  What???  Needless to say, neither of them have many pieces of clothing from last summer that still fit, so we'll be shopping more in the near future.  Where do you find the best bargains for your kids' clothes?

Hot or cold?

I noticed something funny yesterday.  When I was younger and we were first married, I was always cold and my husband was always hot.  It was a constant tug-of-war with the covers on the bed and a battle with the thermostat.  Well, yesterday I kicked the ceiling fan up a notch and my hubby complained because he was cold.  Haha!  These peri-menopausal hormones are kicking my butt!  Can anyone relate?

Where has the time gone?

We are feverishly preparing our second graders for First Eucharist.  The school year is almost done.  Our daughter's dance recital will be here before we know it.  And all I can think is how in the heck is it already the end of April?  Anybody else lamenting the fast passage of time?  Seems like just yesterday I was holding a positive pregnancy test with our son...and he's turning 13 this summer!  How???

As we celebrate the Easter Triduum, I will not be posting so we can all take some time to reflect on Jesus' Passion and celebrate His Resurrection.  I pray that your family has a most holy weekend and a joyous Easter Sunday.  God bless!

Prayer Request

Could I please ask for a few more prayers?  My great niece, Braylee, was born with a heart defect nine weeks ago.  At that time, the doctors said they would wait until she was 6-9 months old before doing heart surgery to fix it.  But she's been losing weight and her heart valves are deteriorating faster than they thought.  So she's scheduled for heart surgery tomorrow morning at 7 a.m.  Her dad, my nephew, is only twenty-one and not married yet to Braylee's mom.  They and the doctors could use all the prayers we can give them.  Thank you so much!

Is there anything we can pray about for you?  If so, please share.
