Isaac swam in a mini meet last Friday. It was the last day of his pre-team for the summer. He came such a long way. He swam across the pool in timed races for the following events: kick board, freestyle, backstroke, and breast stroke. The last one he didn't quite have the arms and legs down at the same time. He could only do one and then he'd forget about the other. I was very proud of him! He did an excellent job of trying his best and finishing all the races.
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
