Guess whose name was pulled out of the prayer jar this evening? Mommy.

That would be me. It was a bit odd to gather with the family to pray the rosary for oneself. Odder still was the speculation of the children as to why my “little red heart” was one of the last to be pulled:

“Maybe Mom’s going to face a really big temptation!” Arthur replied, gravely.

“Maybe we’re praying to keep her safe or from getting sick,” Emily said, rather worriedly.

“I think it’s because she has so much laundry…” said Galahad, with a knowing smile.

I think I’ll take door number 3. Suddenly, the laundry doesn’t seem quite so bad!
