I took this photo before mass last night.  I love the way the light streams through the stained glass windows of my church as the sun shines in the late evening.

My son, his wife and baby came over for lunch today.  I love to watch them.  Such a beautiful young family, their relationship is warm and easy.  They smile a lot, they have lots of humor between them.   His wife has a better attitude about him being overseas for a year than I do.  She is younger.  She is not as rigid I guess.  I remember being able to roll with the punches, so to speak, a lot better when I was younger.

Last night I took my computer and went to bed with a movie.  I watched "The 13th Day" a nice film about the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima.   It put my sadness and worry into perspective.  

Thank you for your prayers.  I appreciate them more than words can say.  


  1. Sounds like your son has a wonderful family. God bless and more prayers coming your way. :)

  2. I have the movie, the thirteenth day but I haven't managed to watch it through yet! I lent it to my dad and only just got it back. I might watch it tonight.

    I remember being less phased by life when I was younger. I worry about so many things these days, I am becoming known as a fretter. I have to stop, take deep breaths and remember who holds the universe in His hands, who also counts the hairs on my head and knows when even a small bird dies. He is in control, not me(It was always going to be about control, with me....haha!).

    More prayers coming at ya, this end too.

  3. I will continue to pray today at adoration. ♥

  4. I have been offering prayers for you and your family since you asked. Also, yesterday my pastor said he had a DVD he wanted me to watch. Guess what it was? The same one you watched last night! I can't wait to have a look.
