There are many reasons why I’m Catholic
Well, really I’m Catholic because that is how I was raised.
But, the main reason I have remained a Catholic
And at no point in my life am I more grateful to have our Blessed Mother in my life than right now
‘Cause only God (and Jesus’ mama as Ren calls her) knows how many Hail Marys I’ve whispered during the the past week
… at bedtime with 2 kids crying …
… as I watch Ren practice his “jumping” from higher and higher perches …
… as Fiona gets
squeezed loved to death …
… when I take a survey of what is not getting done around my house …
… when Ren grabs my coffee cup and dumps it all over my clean & folded laundry …
and I just can’t get to one while I am nursing, changing a diaper, consoling or kissing the other one
“When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”
