It is a lovely, though somewhat cool morning. I’ve been up since sunrise…breakfast and lunch packed for hubby and a few moments of silence before the children awaken. It is always such a dilemma – what to do with this time?

Prayer should be the first order of the day, though sometimes I must admit that the laundry receives my first attentions. Still, the opportunity to recollect oneself and approach the Throne of Heaven, should never be missed.

Uninterrupted computer time is at a premium, as well. A teenage daughter with a burgeoning photography career (she is quite good) as well as her own “web world”, sons obsessed with computer gaming and a 5 year old who has just discovered EWTN for kids…sigh…

So, I check my mail, make my post, look at the news and weather…let the games begin! School today, laundry this afternoon…and a million and one smiles, tears, distractions and the occasional disaster. Thank you, my God , for my life…
