I was praying with Drew while I rubbed Vicks on his chest before bed. I usually let him fill in the blanks when I say the prayers he is supposed to know. (All my other kids could say them all by now, but he can just fill in the blanks...when he feels like it.) Well, I said, "Give us this day, our daily," (pause.) Drew chimes in with, "Planet." Daily Planet? I guess the kid is a bit superhero obsessed, huh?
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
