We can't read the paper or turn on the television,
open a computer, iphone and other means of
communication without seeing or hearing something about
Another miracle yesterday with the return of 3 girls...
another case of rape.
Please help be an advocate.
Give support to
mothers who are suffering because their children are being abused.
First that means talking about it. It doesn't go away because you don't say anything.
You may have a friend who is suffering right now for her child and you don't know it. You may have a friend who was abused as a child and wonders why life is so difficult in her older years.
By sharing your own experience, strength and hope you open up the opportunity for dialog.
We are so fortunate to have the Survivor's Healing Center in our community.
They also receive calls from all over the country during office hours.
These organizations are also on Facebook:
MASA Mother's Against Sexual Abuse
MOSAC Mother's of Sexually Abused Children
RAINN Rape Abuse Incest National Network
SHC Survivor's Healing Center
Look for the documentary to be shown on Public Television on June 26th PBS:

The washer and dryer were moved out of the kitchen and right inside the back door to the back room. This area became a pantry and houses the refrigerator. The sink is now larger and single. The faucet is very workable and the cabinets are custom made mahogony. The counter top is corion in a beautiful finish.

Happy May Basket Day!!!
That was always such a fun day...making a basket filled with
candy and delivering it to a friends house. Then we'd leave it on the doorstep, ring the bell and run away.
If you saw us and caught us...you had to kiss us.
I never ran so slow in my life!

My grandfather donated the first $1000 to start a Catholic School
I attended a Catholic School.
My son attended Catholic school.
My daughter teaches in a Catholic School.
My grandchildren attended Catholic School.
Am I partial? Yes, I think so and was also
honored to be invited to talk to the upper grade students of Good Shepard School
about the writing process..
I read a chapter from "Friends til Cows Wear Lipstick" with the 5th graders
and stayed on and read "Zen Ties" by John Murth to the kindergartens classes.
Each of the students received a copy of my children's books.
It was a wonderful afternoon.

He is Risen
This has been a wonderful Lenten season.
Yesterday was a touching day filled with words of inspiration.
We honored the Cross,
Received the Eucharist,
Followed the Stations of the Cross,
Recited the Mercy Chaplet...
My fast this year was from television and not food.
What a great feeling celebrating Easter this year.
a difference that I participated and stayed conscience of those 40 days.
~Happy Easter to all Christians~

The Cystic Fibrosis Group sends me a postcard that says when they will drive by my house.
On that day I attach the lime green postcard to my bags and they take them about 8 am.
This makes it much easier to give donations because not only do they pick up, they give you a good enough notice (about one week) and it works for me.
Today was a good day to downsize again.
I have things I have been holding onto in my closet just because...
I put them on for the last time and then thought about someone having them and smiled. I don't need of every color or size. I have purchased new shoes that feel good in
the store and I get ready to wear them something pinches, etc. 4 new ad 4 used pairs tossed in a bag.
So I guess I ended up with a wheelbarrow full.
That's all I can think of !!! Still having trouble transferring new pictures
from my Iphone. Guess I'll go into the shop tomorrow and get the answers.
It's not so hard to do Holy Week when I know the outcome...
That Christ rose from the dead
The descent of the Holy Spirit
Thank you....thank you.
