Last week I wrote about wanting a wooden rosary - something more austere than the sparkly red beads I am currently using.
But I am who I am, and I am afraid I am so terribly weak.
I just spent at least 2 hours online designing a wonderful beautiful (semi-expensive) rosary (from Rosary-City.com). And I clicked "buy" and it will be put together to my specifications and mailed to me. I think I will have it by the end of next week.
Black wooden beads, silver crucifix, silver center.
Why do I have to do this?
Is this sheer vanity, or is this actually putting my money where my mouth is?
I know I can pray just as well on the pink plastic beads strung on white string that I can find in most adoration chapels. But I love beautiful things. And when I leave this earthly plane, I can give these to my son as they are "men's" beads.
(I have spent most of today in bed with a migraine and then the sickness that comes from the medication that gets rid of the headache. If not for a laptop computer, I would not have the ability to do these things :), at least not from bed.)
