I have this pet peeve that when I wake up in morning my sink should be clean and without dirty dishes. Every night before I goto bed I do a wipe down of entire kitchen and then rest easy. Normally it stays clean...,but lately a ghost has been consuming peanut butter sandwiches and orange juice at night and every morning I am greeted with a dirty knife, plate, cup and sometimes bowl. Time is of the essence in the morning.... I don't like spending it cleaning up from night before! It makes me grumpy I admit. This morning was no different... And I found myself letting it rule my attitude. Then the "ghost" whom shall remain nameless sent me a text which reads as follows:
When two people love each other it is a wonderful thing, but when two people love God and each other this is the kind of relationship from which the future of the Church will spring. When you both burn with a love of God the fire will consume the impurities of your human love. The more you love God the more you will be able to love each other-mustard seeds
I know if I did not have God in my life the little thing like a sink full of dirty dishes could fester into a much bigger thing!

At Benedict's last doctor appointment Blaise and I made an amazing discovery. They have a magazine for boys! Not your typical highlights but a bona fide dirt, snakes and mountain climbing type of magazine. He made me read it to him cover to cover. I am embarrassed to admit this but he liked it so much there was talk of smuggling it out in his jacket! I assured him we would look at the library or research it online and possibly locate another issue. Well yesterday at the library my faithful librarian helper showed me years of back issues you can check out. Blaise was in boy heaven. Tony has told me he also had a subscription thru the boy scouts? I chuckled at idea at Tony being a boy scout...I suppose all little boys like adventure and dirt and things like that!
