Isaac is staring out the window instead of buckling up in his car seat after Mass. We all prod him to hurry up so we can get moving. He starts buckling and says, "I like that girl in the green sweater." I looked around and located her getting into her van with her family. She was a teenager with long curly hair. We had just been introduced to her family inside. When I asked him what he liked about her, he replied with an embarrassed shrug and said, "She's beautiful and stuff." Oh, dear!
The family also informed me that I missed some of his other common funny words. He says prinzels for pretzels and granellow bar for granola bar.
My husband and I were sitting in church before Mass shortly after we were confirmed into the Catholic Church. Both of our gazes drifted to a pew close by where a family filled up the whole pew. Granted it was one of the shorter pews, not a full length one. I can't remember who said it to whom, but one of us said, "I hope we fill up a pew with our family one day." We agreed it would be wonderful. And so that is what we're hoping for...a pew all our own.
People think they have to find their soulmate to have a good marriage. You get married, and after 20 years of loving, bearing and raising children, meeting challenges- then you'll have "created" your soulmate. -Diane Sollee
