My heart is still very heavy today, and I don't see any let-up for that. I've been praying my 7 Sorrows Chaplet and just generally praying more and spending more time with my kids. We all feel very vulnerable right now, and I think it's important to do our best to just double our efforts to spread love and joy in this world of ours. So I'm doing my best.
You'll see on my right sidebar that I used the Random Saint Generator to select a new blog saint for 2013...
The Life of a Catholic Librarian blog saint for 2013 is St. Isidore the Farmer!
Right, I hadn't heard of him before either.
But click on his photo to be taken to a description. :) And I don't think it's a coincidence that he was married and had a child who died. One of his patronages is against the death of children.
St. Isidore, pray for us all.
In other news, Anne has decided that changing her diaper is now a sport she's lobbying to have entered into the 2016 Summer Olympics:
Flip! Attempt to hold down legs! Oh wait, arms are now pulling hair! Flip! Squawking! Pin down torso to remove pants! Re-flip! Threats are now issued! Daddy may be called! Hold down legs! Must remain strong for the wiping round! And for the gold medal clinch...
Do the whole thing without getting poo on (1) self, or (2) the wall!
This has renewed my vow for early potty training.
