Today was a good day...until I got home. Have you ever had one of those days as a Mom or Dad? I mean, work was good. I came home and actually cooked a hot, fresh healthy meal. It was a rare night that I am home to do it between sports and work and errands - we parents know the drill. It's all good. No complaints. I was excited to sit together. When these decendents hit high school it becomes even more rare and difficult to have family meals.
Alas, others were not in similar moods. Ultimately, I find myself in my car (it's raining of course) sitting at my church (St. Max), praying to our Lady of Guadalupe and asking her for help to be a good mom. What do I do?
I go to Facebook of course! My real, littlest sister, Caroline, had the Winnie the Pooh picture posted. Thank you Blessed Mother for sending me the reminder for what motherhood means. I heard you today. I return home with a renewed spirit to minister within my own home, as well as beyond it.
Hail Mary full of Grace!
