Words From Our Heart

At Mass this morning, the homily focused on the words, “for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.” The priest talked about how our words show what is truly in our heart. He verified our human condition and our need for real relationships. This can only happen when people speak truth to one […]

Summer Camp Memories

My mom receives “the Word among us” magazine that includes daily Mass readings and reflections. Tonight I read one of the articles that she pointed out to me. It was written by a young man who was deeply impacted by his experience at a Catholic summer camp. He eventually became involved in the organization as […]

Sam’s Club Outing

Since this crazy below zero cold snap, my mom and I have been stuck in the house alone for 4 days. Even though it was still below freezing today, we decided we needed to get out. I just recently joined Sam’s Club and had been wanting to do some product and price comparisons, so that’s […]

So Blessed

Today I talked with a friend whose father passed away a year ago. We shared stories, experiences, and emotions. As I thought about our conversation, I realized how many friends I have that have lost a parent just in the last year. It’s a lot. I mean there seems to be a lot of people […]

Getting Out

There was a get together for the residents in the housing complex today and I was pleasantly surprised that my mom wanted to go. It was a good walk to the other end where the party was being held. We had not met the people who were hosting the party and the husband was very […]

Stress Relief

My sister came for the weekend, so I made an appointment to get a massage at the prompting of the family. I talked to the guy a little bit and told him I felt like my whole body was a big ball of tension. After only a few minutes, the massage felt so good I […]
